Trivia

Actress Birdie M. Hale, who was more than 90 years old during production of "A Lot Like Love" (2005), played the role of an old woman with a singular line ("Would you like to sit next to your girlfriend?") on a New York subway train early in the film. She had a very similar role as an elderly passenger on a New York subway train - also encouraging the two protagonists to get together - at the end of Coming to America (1988). See more »

Goofs

When Oliver and Emily are in the bar in New York, Oliver pays with what appears to be two bills that are of the "new style" (larger head shots of the presidents, etc.) although the scene is supposed to take place before this new monetary style was introduced. See more »

Quotes

Not at all a rip off but instead a good movie that echoes "When Harry Met Sally"
23 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is true that the way this movie was shot it did seem similar to the Billy Crstal and Meg Ryan romantic comedy. But everyone forgets that Hollywood rips everything off all the time. This film manages to keep the watcher interested and makes you feel for it's characters.

Ashton Kutcher is usually very unwatchable, but in this picture he helps create a shy and ambitious lead in Oliver Martin. Oliver is a dreamer who puts all his energy in creating a internet company to sell diapers. Then there's the always animated Amanda Peet as Emily. Emily from early on tries to push Oliver to explore life. Ashton and Amanda make a great team on camera and also have great chemistry when it comes to the more emotional parts of the movie.

Overall "A Lot Like Love" is a great romantic comedy with real heart and is really worth watching.
