Not perfect, but a nice, wise story about giving love a chance to grow
19 June 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Julia (Piper Perabo) is a fetching college student with a host of admirers and big dreams of a career. Enter Drew. He is a law student and from the minute he sees Julia, he chases her relentlessly. When he finally captures her, Drew convinces Julia to move cross country with him to California. He has good job prospects. However, she has to give up a nice career opportunity in Chicago. Despite the fact that she has only known him two months, Julia agrees to the move. But, will it be love everlasting or will there be complications? This would be a good movie to recommend to anyone who is on the verge of rushing into a relationship. Julia and Drew are genuinely in love, they believe, yet their love is definitely tested, by other relatives, by job choices, by attractive co-workers, etc. The two stars are beautiful people and this fact adds much to the film's enjoyment. Also, the film features the most darling DOG ever put on screen and a charming little apartment setting, complete with flamingo decor. No, the movie is not perfect. Yet, for those who love the tales of romance and are forever searching for a new one, this is a good addition. Because, yes, the film is perfect for a cozy evening in the dead of winter. Cook up the hot chocolate and wrap yourself in this story as well as a suitable afghan.
