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

After Oliver and Emily walk out of the restaurant after Emily is upset, they drive off. The shot shows a Toyota Corolla in front that is not giving way and Emily is frustrated by the driver. Oliver asks her to take it easy before Emily overtakes the car. The overtaken car is now a Ford. See more »

Great movie - funny, romantic and poignant
8 May 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

From the majority of other comments written about this film, it would seem that there are a lot of bitter, cynical people out there.

I watched this film last night with my wife and we both loved it - we laughed a lot, and thought the 2 main characters perfectly complimented each other - their chemistry was wonderful and utterly endearing, and you actually gave a sh*t about what happened to them.

Maybe I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy, but I'm astounded by the negative comments posted on this site. Some posts criticise the dialogue, but, well, isn't that just how people actually speak? I generally do not give out lengthy monologues re: my emotional state, and can appreciate a movie that deals in real language. It doesn't make the film any less appealing or worthwhile.

Go and see it with an open mind and, if you have a heart, then you'll love it.
