Goofs

Early in the movie, a newspaper headline announces that a "soccer" star was caught having a three-way sex affair. In the UK, football hasn't been popularly referred to as "soccer" since the 1970s and would never be referred to as such in print by a British newspaper. The speaking parts of the scripts properly refer to the game as "football". See more »

Like a 1930s or 1940s romantic comedy
10 June 2007 | by (Raleigh, NC) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed "The Truth About Love"because frankly it evokes memories of the improbable romantic comediesof the thirties and forties (with the addition of cell phones and phonesex to give it a contemporary touch). It's comparable to films like TheAwful Truth and Bringing up Baby, though not quite of theirquality. I liked the fact that the three main characters, the husband,the wife, and the best friend, were very distinctive -- that they didn't have the dreadful sameness of the looks of some of today's Hollywood leading men and women. Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jimi Mistry and Dougray Scott deliver good performances in this screwball comedy. When I select a movie to watch, I don't always require a blockbuster film with a perfect script, just one that is pleasant and fun to watch. The Truth About Love was just right for middle of the night viewing.
