When Martha and Daniel meet at the curb outside the airport, there is an extra carrying a large gray bag. He is walking away, going to Daniel's right.
When Martha and Daniel begin talking the same extra (minus the bag) is walking away from Martha, going the opposite direction he was before. The camera cuts to Daniel and then back to Martha and the extra has disappeared completely. See more »
And one of the rooms they called it the library and they filled it full of books. Thousands of books on every subject and they're all second-hand. You know why?
It was cheaper?
No. It's so it looks like they've been read.

I will agree that this film was predictable in some ways, but had a few strategically placed plot twists that made up for it. Monica Potter is beautiful, funny and charming as the object of three lifelong friends' affection. I liked Joseph Fiennes in Shakespeare In Love but he's absolutely wonderful here. I didn't think he and Gwyneth Paltrow shared much chemistry in Shakespeare but here he has a warm and special chemistry with Ms. Potter. It really looks like they are in love, and I love the way when he repeated his ideal of the perfect woman, they filled in the gaps.
This is an underrated but enjoyable romance, along the lines of Sliding Doors.
