I loved the movie, hope it'll come out on DVD!
18 October 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw the premier yesterday, and this film surprised me in a very good way. I loved it! In my opinion it is better than a lot of popular romantic comedies, such as the Wedding Planner, or Bridget Jones's Diary and many others. It highlighted the funny but very true differences between Europeans and Americans, which I think was hilarious - except for when the English girl is struggling with the American kitchen appliances, desperately asking the New Yorker advertiser for advice or a manual. That part is just dumb, as Europe is just as if not more advanced in technology than N America, but other than that - thumbs up. This film is not only funny, but realistic, too. I love the way it depicts the advertising industry with all its tricks and imperfections. I hope "Perfect Strangers" is going to be available on DVD - if it will, I'm gonna buy it!
