Ruby Weaver has man trouble: she tries to fix them, so she's stuck herself with a string of losers. Her current lover, Sam Deed, seems different: he's sweet, tender, just in from Dubuque. But, as Ruby tells her therapist about Sam, in flashbacks we see someone not quite of this world. In fact, Sam informs Ruby that he's from the future, 2470 to be exact, traveling back in time to avoid prosecution for his sister's death, and to find Ruby, whose photo he saw back home. Ruby's sure he's delusional, but most of the time she wants to keep him - and maybe fix him. Although he seems sane, maybe Sam hasn't told her the real story: what's he up to, and who is Chrystie Delancey? Written by

Murder? Oh God, Sam, murder?
It wasn't me.
Nobody could understand this, Sam, it's too much. It's too much.
I think it would be easier if I told you a little at a time. It would sink in a little at a time.
Sink in a little at a time? You... you just dropped an emotional anvil on my head. Look at me, I'm flat as a pancake.

My wife has had me watch almost every romantic comedy out there. Some of them are good, most are tolerable and a number of them are just bad. I tend to favor the comedy side more than the romance, but I do like a good romance, too. This movie had a lot of both.
Happy Accidents isn't a typical Hollywood-Meg Ryan-style romantic-comedy. It's quirky and unique. The acting is very good. Dialogue is fresh. Overall, it is very original. A fun watch where you never look to see how much time is left. Highly recommended.
