Instead of really living her life, since losing her mother at age seven, Seattle lawyer Amy Myer sticks to a ridiculously detailed time-line mother drew as a guideline in all walks of life, even love in search of marriage with 'number 7'. Despite good advice from father Bernie, aunt Rachel and uncle ray, she refuses to contemplate going steady with any of the six first steady boyfriends, even apparently perfect businessman Daniel McCandles. She initially declines accompanying a good friend, bagel shop manager Connor, to a family wedding as his pretend-fiancée, but changes her mind so Daniel can be lucky seven afterward. However, Peter proves a perfect match, and able to make her reconsider the blind life schedule. Written by
After Amy breaks up with Leo (#5), she scratches out the number on her "time line." After breaking it off with Daniel, she goes home to look at her time line again. In this shot, her time line is clearly unmarked. See more »
You know, there are so many increadible, wonderful things that you can't plan for that just happen. That you don't put on a list. You know, it's... See, the problem with a time line is it doesn't allow you spontaneity. You know? It doesn't allow you to take chances.
I... I have taken plenty of chances.
Oh, yeah? Prove it. Take a chance with me.

The helpful direction the dying give you, in an effort to help you think about the future, really does weigh on you once they're gone. You hold onto it thinking you're holding onto them and yet you have to challenge yourself to get on with the life you want for yourself. This film's lead character experiences that, struggles with it, trying hard to stick to the map her mother left her for her life. Throughout it reminded me to move on so I could appreciate the film for that alone. However Kimberly Williams is very good in her role, alternately type-A and ditsy, and Patrick Dempsey is also really good and his character the sweet but strong man most hetero women - and gay men - wish for (for all Grey's Anatomy "McDreamy" fans, it's worth watching!) and the scenery in and around Sooke Harbour House lovely (so want to move there).
Yes, I'd watch it again! And probably again, in a few years, just as a reminder...
