In the scene on the rooftop right after David turns down Katrina's advances, it is apparent that green screen technology is being used. There is a green halo around David and Elizabeth's right hand has a green reflection. See more »
this is a nice, light-hearted fun comedy. it is slightly different to other comedies, in that the story is original. the concept is a bit weird, but interesting and different.
reese witherspoon is very good in the film. she portrays a niceness and has a touching sensitivity which comes across nicely. there is a nice chemistry between the male and female lead characters. it is believable and interestingly fun.
the apartment where some of the conversations between the two main characters takes place, is very suitable. there is a nice view out of the window and the sofas and arrangements of furniture, give a cosy and warm feel.
i very much liked the ending of the film. A bit like a fairytale where the end fits the puzzle.
the film improves as you watch it, and i appreciated it more, once the film was over.
