I liked this movie for many reasons, and mostly because it was a romantic comedy that was something different. There is a feel of mystery and magical realism that I found intriguing. It wasn't a standard boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl. For me, the magical couple (Il Magnifico and Mrs. Jones) and their apparent affect on Angelina and Mike's romance. was the most interesting part of the movie.
The scenes in which Angelina and Mike were in together were great - I wish that there had been more of them. I like the scene in which Angelina appears to be speaking in English without her Italian accent, and Mike appears to be speaking Italian.
If you like Italy and the Italian language, chances are you will like this movie. If you are Italian, as I am, you will relate to the characters. There was a good amount of Italian in the movie. There is a funny scene in which Mike learns Italian "gestures." and what they mean. He also gets a sort of magical romantic makeover.
I'm not sure where this movie was filmed (Canada, maybe?) but I thought that the scenery was beautiful. It sort of reminded me of the Little Italy in Montreal.
I like the fact that both men and women will enjoy this movie - it's not a typical "chick flick." All in all, a good movie - a must - see for Sean Astin fans or anyone who likes romantic movies.
