Loved it!=)
9 February 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie not expecting Jane Eyre and that's okay because what I did see was thoroughly delightful. The only thing missing was myself as Maggie. It was fun, mysterious, light-hearted, and had sweet references to movies and people that mattered to me when I was a teen. I will always smile when I think of this film. Maggie is a delightful character and fun to watch. Betty White is perfect for the book shop owner. It is also nice to see San Francisco in a film where no one was getting shot or had police or detectives running around hunting a serial killer. It was great to just get lost for a little in a film that leaves you smiling. Thank you!=)
