Did You Know?


Both Leonardo DiCaprio and Ashton Kutcher were considered for the role of Dr. Niel Gardner's, but the producers later decided they were too young for the role. Finally, the choices were narrowed down to Ken Marino, Zach Braff, and Mark Feuerstein. The producers loved Ken Marino's sense of humor and chose him. See more »

Great movie for romantics
2 September 2005 | by (Plantation, FL, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as part of The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. Although the movie had many technical issues (e.g., the boom is visible in about 30% of the film), I was so won over by the storyline and the characters that I forgot about them. The difficulty of making a good romantic comedy is that the format is standardized (guy meets girl, guy loses girl, guy gets girl). Given that, it is probably a little harder to suspend disbelief for those that are not romantics themselves. I really enjoyed this movie and I recommend it for those that like their romantic comedies with a little bit of wit and intelligence.

Note: I hate to write reviews that boil down to, "People who like this sort of thing will like this.", but there it is.
