Quotes

Elizabeth Barrett: It's something that happens when you meet someone that you feel deeply connected to. And, it's not like that connection is a product of anything, intentional, but rather, something outside, of yourself. Something that you can't fight. Something that was, just, meant to be. Something that makes you wish you could live forever so you would never have to be without it.

A near-perfect TV romcom
11 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard to find anything wrong with this movie. It's a fun fantasy...joyful, endearing, and *short* (clocking into a two-hour time slot at one hour and fifty minutes, *including* commercials).

Sara Rue is delightful, as usual, and looking great, as usual. (I thought she looked great even before her weight loss.) Her presence has never failed to brighten any production in which I've seen her.

Barry Watson plays "future boyfriend" Pax ("peace" in Latin) to perfection, with just the right amount of out-of-time awe. (In his time, the 32nd century, Earth has "evolved" into a "perfect" world without anger or strife, but also without passion or love.)

Set in New Orleans, the locale enables Pax to experience its renowned jazz music, giving rise to unknown feelings and leaving him less robotic in behavior.

Fred Willard, too, whose roles too often demand an over-the-top performance, comes in with just the right level of comedic inflection.

I even laughed at the wee bit of slapstick herein, a form which usually passes by me unappreciated.

All in all, watching this is a mood-lifter and time well-spent.
