Funny movie in which the main character tries to 'prove' love
19 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Had a wonderful few hours watching this funny movie about trying to scientifically prove romance. How does a scientist prove love? This sweet movie involves loves, questions about love, quirky characters, espionage and a few hours of great laughs.

The main character, Sam, is on her way to defend her Phd, but along the way hits a few bumps in the road and begins to question her life and choices. Is Ben a 'keeper,' should she continue to defend her scientific theory, is Leslie's love advice good practice, and will her mother's hat work?

Go see the movie and find out!
