In case you are wondering, this is a nice romcom but it has some offensive elements that will upset some viewers, certainly
Sam (Justin Long) lives in Manhattan and is a struggling writer. Mostly, he does novelizations of successful films, rather beneath his talent and ambitions. But, bills must be paid. Naturally, the city is an expensive place to live, so Sam has an eccentric roommate. One day, at a local coffee shop, Sam spies a beautiful barista, Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood). Its first-sight love, no doubt. However, when Sam tries to casually start a conversation, she doesn't seem interested. What to do? Well, this is the age of Facebook, after all, so Sam looks up her site. In her profile is a list of things she likes, such as ballroom dancing, judo, guitar music and the like. Now, here's a way into her good graces! Sam signs up for guitar lessons at once and the next time he approaches Birdie, he brings up topics he knows she will enjoy. It works! Soon, Birdie is amazed at how many of "their likes" are the same. Even though she gets fired from her barista job, Sam fins a way to see her, thanks to the new, gruff coffeemaker (Peter Dinklage). But, this is a dangerous game, is it not? What happens when either Birdie finds out Sam has different interests or Sam gets tired of pretending? This lovely story has two terrific stars. Long is boyishly handsome as ever, with a great sense of humor. Even better, Wood is utterly gorgeous and can turn an ordinary phrase into something special. What a fine duo they are! The supporting cast, too, is surprising, with Dinklage, Vince Vaughn, Sam Rockwell, Busy Phillips and others helping move the film along with zest. Viewers will enjoy the sets, Wood's fantastic costumes, the lively script, and the overall product. Beware, however, to a couple of risqué situations that will not go over well with all, including this viewer. Someday, perhaps, movies will be released with a PG and an R rated version, like Wide and Fullscreen. Until then, pick up the remote and fast forward through the upsetting scenes. But, slow down for the important parts of this lovely romantic comedy.
