After losing her job, making out with her soon-to-be former boss, and finding out that her daughter plans to spend Thanksgiving with her boyfriend, Claudia Larson faces spending the holiday with her family.
Robert Downey Jr.
Gwen grows up with her romantic mother constantly telling her the story of her courtship and marriage to her father. Nick grows up with an alcoholic father who can't hold a job and whose family, as a result, is forced to move all the time. The two are shaped by this - Gwen a romantic and Nick withdrawn, unsure of himself - as they watch the hugely popular sixties sitcom, "One Big Happy Family." Years later, it is the star of that show, now a child actor gone bad with a history of detox and people always saying, "I thought she was dead," Francesca Lanfield, who connects the two of them, after years of near-misses and almost encounters. Gwen is hired to ghost-write Francesca's autobiography, while Nick, becoming her lover, is the architect who is to design a building on Francesca's property. When Gwen decides to crusade to save Francesca's building, she writes letters to the newspaper which catches Nick's attention - and wins his heart.Written by

Come in, I've been expecting you / There's a knock on the door and love walks through / And lights a fire and smiles a smile / As if love were going to stay a while / And the fire breathes and weaves its spell / But then love runs out of lies to tell / For love is restless, love's a flirt / Love has places to go and people to hurt / So here's the shovel to smother the flame / Tomorrow you'll barely remember my name / And I'll try to forget you, my dearest one / As a prisoner tries to forget the...

As I was watching this movie... I was enthralled. The script, the acting were great. The atmosphere, the subtle nuances that make a certain few movies *exceptional* were all here. This is a movie about finding - the one - ; about soul mates, about finding out who your truly are and what is really important. And it does it without preaching or treating you as if you had an IQ below 10 (like so many romantic movies do). I found it riveting and as I was watching, I was almost ready to say it was one of the best romantic movies of all time.
The ending sucks. The movie should have been half an hour longer. It's almost as if at the end - they fired the writer and finished it in the shortest, shallowest, most meaningless way possible. It's not that the ending was tragic or predictable - it was just so *blah*. And after such a wonderful movie, the ending was such a disappointment, such a downer - it was almost physically painful.
And ironically, despite the fact that 99% of the movie is wonderful, the ending was so bad that I actually recommend against seeing this movie. It left me feeling unfulfilled and unsatisfied which is so unfortunate because I really, really like the first parts of the movie very much. I really, really hope that a DVD will come out with an alternate ending =).
See "When Harry Met Sally" - good movie with a good ending.
