Quotes

Wallace: I remember the night Allan and Nicole met. And that instant conection. If you're lucky it happens once in a lifetime and if you're unlucky, then you have to come to weddings and listen to people like me talking about it. And asume we're all hopeless romantics... It's very easy to be cynical about love, but this, tonight, this is hard.

I loved this movie
12 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a great movie to see as an escape from the mindless explosions in so many "Hollywood" movies. The characters were great. It was very funny! And it was touching. It would probably be in the "chick flick" category, but that's an unfortunate way to pigeonhole this movie. Spoiler alert!!! (I just want to be on the safe side.) I would classify this movie as an updated version of When Harry Met Sally. Daniel Radcliffe is excellent, as is the rest of the cast. We went to a sneak preview a few days ago and I was kind of shocked to read that it was made last year(2013) and "might have a Valentine 2014 release". What the heck happened? I am glad it has a release date for next month(8-2014) I am going to spread the word via Facebook and texts. Great movie.
