Storyline

Buddy (Affleck) has just signed an airline in Chicago as a big client, but is ironically delayed at the airport waiting for a flight to LA on that same airline. He meets fellow passenger Greg, who opts to be bumped, even though it means missing an activity with his older son. When the flight gets resumed, Buddy thinks he's doing a good deed by swapping tickets with Greg so he can get home to his son. Sadly, the flight crashes. Buddy conspires with his friend, the ticket agent that night, to take his name off the passenger list and put Greg's on. Once he's back in LA, his new client dictates that the company run a series of feel-good ads about the crash. Buddy feels very hypocritical, and completely loses it when the commercials win a Cleo. After going through re-hab, he decides he needs to check on Greg's widow. But he doesn't plan on falling in love with her. Written by Tony B

charming tale
6 January 2006 | by aussieukangelSee all my reviews

A charming romantic tale of two people brought together, both with emotional baggage issues. I thought the performances were great from both superb actors, they really worked well together and made a nice couple. I was a bit sorry to see it end so soon, was expecting an update, like a few years on down the track would have been nice to see them work out their issues together. It was well worth the effort to watch this movie, a good girls night in movie. Was especially glad to realize it wasn't a tear jerker but a good solid, easy watching movie. I rated it 7 out of 10 and fans of these two actors are in for a real treat.
