At the beginning of the movie, Will is telling his daughter a story from back in the early 1990's. Even though the movie was released in 2008, (7 years after 9/11/2001), when Will looks out the plane window laying into New York, the Twin Towers are still visible in the background skyline. They were either digitally added, or they used archived video. This is an attention to detail by the director/producer/editor, etc. See more »

As usual with romantic comedies, don't believe much of the negative critique you read about this movie. The move is very entertaining, very romantic, and will play on your nostalgic side if you have one. If you're a 20 something that has been in and out of some significant relationships, this will hit close to home, in a positive way. I wouldn't suggest this movie for a first date because it's not quite light-hearted and happy enough. Watch this one on a second or third date OR watch it with someone you've known for a while who you are about to reveal your feelings to. I promise you - it'll set you up nicely...
