Storyline

Destiny. Faith (Marisa Tomei) believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other. From the Ouija board, she has found the name of her missing half, and it is D-A-M-O-N B-R-A-D-L-E-Y. Later, at the carnival, the fortune teller sees the name Damon Bradley in the Crystal Ball and Faith is convinced. She is told that "You make your own destiny,...don't wait for it to come to you", but she is looking for Damon. 14 years later, she is engaged to a dull podiatrist and plans to marry until she gets a call from one of his classmates who is on his way to Venice, Italy. The classmate is Damon Bradley. Rushing to the airport to see her soul-mate, she misses him and the plane, but decides, then and there, to go after him. So Faith and her sister-in-law Kate both board the next plane for Italy hoping to find her Damon. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

If you love this movie, check out Billy Wilder's Avanti! (1972)
19 August 2004 | by bigblondeSee all my reviews

I adore this film. The script is fresh and well-structured, and contrary to other reviewers I really like the leisurely setup of the first act before Robert Downey, Jr. appears -- it's fun to watch the women responding to the call to adventure. This film is like a dreamy fantasy-trip to Italy, comparable to the great (and underrated) romantic comedy by Billy Wilder, "Avanti!" with Juliet Mills and Jack Lemmon. This movie connects back to that film with the delightful performance of Gianfranco Barra as the concierge; his distinctive voice and excellent comic timing mark his performance as Bruno in Avanti!
