Catalina Sandino Moreno,
After Olly Pickering and his youth friend and dorm mate Murray graduate, Olly, a promising author, gets a contract and advance, which somehow kills his nerve, even about using urinals. Writer's block forces him to move into professionally successful Murray's Soho (London) spare room and take a crappy job as publishing research assistant. Asked as New York trip friend James's London wedding best man, Oly falls in love at the bachelor party. Alas the flirt turns out to be bride Sarah. Olly would graciously walk away, but sassy Murray keeps arranging, resourcefully, for them to meet and in the process gets on with her bitchy sister. Olly's moral reserve is reconsidered when James admits he isn't monogamous. Written by
I've been in love.
Sarah Marie Barker:
You have? What was it like?
Some people say that the ground falls away beneath you but with me, it was as if I suddenly knew the ground was there, as though I could feel the entire planet right there beneath the soles of my feet.
Although I felt the same way when I went up the Empire State Building.

It's not a GREAT movie, but a good one nonetheless. Perfect for a relaxing weekend, with your partner or your best gal pals.
Most importantly, the plot was well-thought through and put together, unlike some romantic comedies which are utterly ridiculous and in which nothing gels.
The lead characters are extremely likable, especially Olly (Stuart Townsend) and Murray (Seth Green). You totally understand why Sarah (Amy Smart) would fall in love with him. He has his quirks (total klutz and a sorta "born-loser") but he has a really good heart. Murray is the best friend whom everyone should want to have. Someone who would do anything to make sure that his best friend gets what he rightly deserves.
One of those movies which gets you to believe in the traditional notions of love once again. To be faithful and truthful to the one you love, and to be willing to do anything to make him/her happy. And also, that being in love brings out the best in a person.
