A cute but vapid story with nothing more clever than what is at the surface. A good romantic comedy says more with out being so obvious. If you like romantic comedies this is no Brigitte Jones, Amelie, Silver linings Playbook, or When Harry Met Sally, this isn't even "You've got Mail."

The lighting is great, the performances are amazing, and the whole film is so well put together, you can hardly help but fall in love. I highly recommend this film to anybody who wants to enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane, and to be a part of a really enjoyable film.
