At a party where Kathleen realizes that Joe is in fact Joe Fox, she is talking to him as he helps himself to the caviar garnish from a plate. He scrapes a section of the garnish from around the edge of the plate. When he does this again a moment later, the caviar garnish is back in the exact same position it was before he first scraped it off. See more »
This was an all right movie, but can I make just one little observation? If the movie is trying to make a social statement about big book chains with no personality (like Hank's Fox Books) greedily driving the little stores with charm (like Ryan's Shop around the Corner) out of business, how is it that the filmmakers chose to put every other scene in a Starbucks? Starbucks has undoubtedly forced more little shops out of business that any big book chain has.
This doesn't mean that it's not an enjoyabe movie. But it takes something away from Meg's righteous indignation when she woefully closes the bookstore and then goes to suck down a Mochacino.
