Sweet Movie
22 December 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the Midwest of USA, the sweethearts Drew (Martin Henderson) and Julia (Piper Perabo) are graduating in the college. Drew convinces Julia to move with him to Los Angeles, where his sister Terri (Kathleen Wilhoite) lives and got a job for him. The young couple become close friends of their neighbors Elyse (Jennifer Tilly) and Lenny Steinberg (Artie Lange), who owns a small real estate business. However, the immature Drew breaks the relationship with Julia, afraid of the consequences of their commitment.

"Perfect Opposites" is a little gem in the genre of romantic comedy. The cute story presents funny, romantic and dramatic situations in right doses and pace, and has a very appropriate inconclusive end. The chemistry of Martin Henderson and Piper Perabo together of the humor of Jennifer Tilly and Artie Lange and good lines make this sweet movie a surprisingly great entertainment, and therefore highly recommended for fans of a delightful romantic comedy. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Opostos Perfeitos" ("Perfect Opposites")
