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

fun, quirky love story that shows how strange and wonderful love is
30 June 2008 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

I really liked this one. The movie definitely grows on you, and then all the sudden you realize how wonderful it is. It really shows how our preconceived notions about love are sometimes what blocks us from seeing real love. It really has a surprisingly deep message about love, and is definitely worth watching. It has some clever twists, great dialog, silly moments, and is generally a great time. I would put in the same genre as "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and as silly and absurd as "Notting Hill." Plus, Brittany Murphy is fun to look at, as always, and there is some cute guys for the ladies to like. A great date movie, but also a great movie for old married couples who want to rediscover their love.
