Storyline

When Jack gets rescued by Maria, a superstitious Portuguese beauty, he has no idea that his life and luck are both about to change. During this accidental "first date", Jack and Maria project idealistic images of themselves -- images that are humorously contradicted through a series of flash-forwards to their future life together. Written by from Facebook: A Date With Miss Fortune

We love this movie
20 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

My wife and I loved this movie! The Characters were very realistic and the family is very much like a Portuguese family that I know. The script was witty and the acting by Ryan Scott and Jeannette Sousa was excellent! The dog in the movie was very funny! Joaquim De Almeida was very believable as the father. I have seen him in many movies and this role was very different for him. We thought it was funnier than My Big Fat Greek Wedding! I have heard that this was a low budget film but I did not feel that it was low budget. The rain seen was very realistic and the break up seen was very sad. Vic Sahay was very funny as well! We found that we enjoyed it so much with all the characters that it would make a good sitcom.
