Storyline

Emily Jackson lives a fast-paced life. Always on the go, able to talk around the clock, with a sensitive soul she loves playing matchmaker for her friends. It's Emily's gay roommate and frequent companion Peter, who becomes again the subject matchmaking skills when handsome new photographer assistant Paolo arrives at the Vogue offices, where Emily works. She makes it her mission to bring the two men together. Unfortunately for her, she is so busy arranging a love connection between Peter and Paolo that she remains completely blind to the one suitor who longs to provide her with the loving companionship that she so cheerfully arranges for others. And so it does make sense that Peter, a screenwriter in the making, starts telling the story from his own point of view. Written by kerrsmith2306

Sometimes you just want a good laugh
14 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can you say "Feel Good!" This is a really charming film. A friend invited me to a screening in San Francisco and I didn't know what to expect. Gorgeous shots of London, super witty, fast dialogue, cool music throughout, great performances and surprising cameos throughout. I wasn't too familiar with Brittany Murphy before but she's adorable in this film. The English gal who plays her best friend is hilarious. To me, the film is along the lines of Love Actually. There's room for all kinds of films and sometimes you want realistic drama, documentary and so on. But there's also a time for kicking back and having a laugh. So if you're looking for intelligent, light entertainment, see this film!
