Goofs

When Kat and Nick arrive at the house in London where they spend their first few nights, it is broad daylight outside. It is still daylight as Nick showers and they discuss the magazine article of his that Kat has brought. Then, in the following scene, it's suddenly dark and they are making and crawling into the bed, with no hint of them having gone down to dinner or done anything else in between during which a sufficient amount of time would have passed to explain this change from day to night.

Quotes

Nick Mercer: Go ahead, Kat, hate me. I think you're running out of steam on this whole Jeffrey thing anyhow. Maybe now you'll be able to hold on to this long enough to ruin your next relationship.

Very sweet
6 February 2005 | by (North East) – See all my reviews

Critics shritics. I loved the movie. To me, this is a great romantic comedy. It has a sweet heroine and a gorgeous man who literally is the perfect guy for her. Like critics say, it was predictable. But the movie ended exactly like I wanted it to so I wasn't disappointed at all. I left my boyfriend in front of the TV drinking beer and watching the superbowl with his buddies. Hey, if men can have a fantasy world to escape in to, so can I.

Sometimes it's great to just go to the movies and escape into a romantic fantasy. I wish that every guy would see this movie because they could learn something about what women want from the leading man. It's really not that hard guys. I think this movie was the perfect escape for women who don't want to watch football.
