Hodgeman to the rescue...lucky girl ..!!
14 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Just when rom-coms got all boring and oh-so-predictable and we decided to write them off of our Sunday evenings, Jon Kasdan presented this cute,funny movie- the first time. Thank you!

Beautiful (literally) characters,witty dialogues,good background score and decent acting make this a great option for the rom-com genre fans. The movie did not leave me feeling all mushy and longing for romance...but it was definitely a feel good ride..it actually lifted my spirits :)

Try not to miss it.You will like it,if not love..but it's hard to dislike such a "from the heart" love story. Do watch it..it's not a waste of time..pure entertainment.
