Trivia

The scene where Emily and Oliver are standing naked behind the car and Oliver says to her that she just "looked" (at his genital area) hadn't primarily been shot for the movie. It was actually a real moment between Amanda Peet and Ashton Kutcher, which the director decided to use for the film afterwards. See more »

Goofs

At the airport, an SLR camera appears around Oliver's neck between shots. See more »

Light romantic comedy, but...
2 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

Gosh darn it, I liked it. Did I think it was a cinematic masterpiece - definitely not, but who really expected that anyway? What we have here is a cutesy formulaic light romantic comedy. I laughed and walked out with a smile. Will I remember it in a year, probably not, but thats OK. I'd also like to comment on a post I read here, where the writer was 'distressed' by the characters in this film displaying VERY antiquated and unhip desires - like, dare I say it... wanting to secure a successful career, find love, and get married by age 30. Wow, can you imagine people nowadays feeling that way?! I personally find it 'distressing' to think that we live in a society where having traditional desires is made to be odd. I'm in my 20s and know many other people who are looking for these same things. So go figure, I actually found this perspective in a modern film refreshing.
