Goofs

When James Garner breaks into the cabin, it takes him only a couple of seconds to get to the front door and open it for Julie Andrews. It should have taken a lot more time, as he would have had to climb into the broken window and cross the floor. He also says that he has checked the phone and found it was dead. He simply would not have had the time to have done that. See more »

A lovely night
27 December 2004 | by missgoddess1907See all my reviews

I gave "One Special Night" to myself as a Christmas present and it was worth every cent I spent on it. James Garner as Robert the Builder and the great-looking Julie Andrews as Catherine the Doctor are a terrific couple, funny, heart-warming and lovable. You can see that Garner and Andrews known each other for quite a while and that they're used to act together. They do have a chemistry that makes your heart want to jump. Julie is funny but nonetheless you can see how Katharine's suffering. And Jim, well, let's say, he's the great re-actor he's ever been. I really enjoyed watching those two eat maccaroni and cheese and Julie's face just as well as Jim's. There are so many little scenes you don't realize when you see the movie for the first time that'll make you laugh when you watch for the third or fourth time. I love the way, Catherine talks to herself. We all do it, right? But only few people show it. It was funny and sad, and Julie made it so great. She's just perfect (I LOVE HER!!!) So guys, get some hot chocolate and watch. It doesn't have to be between the holidays, but every day. But in summer, I recommend chocolate ice-cream instead of hot chocolate. If you're not disgusted when you see two older people fall in love, you'll enjoy this movie!
