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>

Goofs

Right before we see Faith packing her case at La Sirenuse, there's a shot of what is supposed, in the film, to be sunrise. However, given the geography of Positano, the position of the sun in that scene means it's actually sunset. See more »

Incredibly Sweet and Engaging
9 October 1999 | by Spiffy-TiffySee all my reviews

I loved this movie.

And for all the stupid mistakes he's made, you have to admit that Robert Downey Jr. can turn in some pretty amazing performances. Marisa Tomei also shines in this incredible fairy tale about looking everywhere to find your one true love.

Light, sweet, and absolutely beautiful, "Only You" will show that at the most unexpected times (or with the most unexpected people) love can show up. You should be ready for it. Don't let the love of your life slip through your fingers in an Italian airport.

10/10
