Quotes

Jack: Nancy, I am so bloody glad you pretended to by my date today, because if you hadn't, then I never would've heard any of your amazing sex theories, or watched you trying to get jalapeno out of your teeth, or witnessed your very instinctive firewoman skills. I would never have got to know that muddy beautiful triathlete face or witnessed that awesome, highly competitive, ass as you were about to get another strike.

A romantic fairytale with good performances and some laughs...
15 November 2015 | by (the Edge of the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

Unbelievable situations could often (at least in the movies) lead to great romances...like...it was meant to be...

A man and a woman, desperate to meet their other halves (although with different approaches, one closed to herself, the other one just trying his luck "out there") end up having a (blind) date in current London, in a situation with mixed identities (sort of).

Simon Pegg and Lake Bell have chemistry in the leading roles and give more than adequate performances.

Overall: A romantic fairytale with quirky humor and an obvious, although impossible, ending!
