When Emma is coming out of commercial during her radio show, the producer counts her down for her next segment with the words "five, four, three, two, one". No one in radio or television would ever vocalize the word, "one" in a countdown. This number is always replaced with a vertical finger signal to represent "one" and a direct finger point to show "zero" or "begin". Since the microphone always goes live on "two" the audience would otherwise constantly be hearing a disembodied voice say "one" when they come out of commercial. See more »

This cake is fantastic!
You mix these two together, it tastes just like a ring-ding.

While not the worst film ever, it was definitely not in the least bit thrilling. Maybe I'm jaded, but this sort of storybook 'romance' isn't realistic. Uma's character acting was horrible and for a woman supposedly torn, she didn't pull it off well. Much as I think the fireman is attractive, he went from wedding bells to angry enough to have this thing rigged (is that realistic?) to suddenly drooling over and being in love with Uma's character. Do real men with backbones even act like that? He was a weak character. Colin's acting wasn't too bad, though also fell into what I've seen him do time and again. The plot....was there a real plot? I think my daughter in high school writes better fiction and romance, and her stories aren't romantic.
