This light-hearted romantic comedy centers tells of love sought, found, lost, and found again, revolving around the lives of two college students in New York City. Sophomore Al Connelly meets the girl of his dreams, freshman Imogen, and true love abounds. The two engage on a whirlwind courtship--they pick a song, eat a cake together, even make love. But Imogen's fear of lost youth causes her to push away from Al, and they go their separate ways. Al attempts to rebound from the relationship, determined to forget Imogen, and he goes to desperate measures to do so. The story is told from the points of view of both Al and Imogen.Written by

The relationship was sweet...most stuff apart from that just didn't fit.
"Down to You" is a film about a relationship between two college students. At first, it's magical and special but over time things begin to sour and they slowly drift apart. Is there any hope for the couple?
The writing of "Down to You" is very frustrating because it seems as if two folks wrote the film separately and then shoved them together...whether they fit or not. On one hand, you have a very sweet romance between Julia Stiles and Freddy Prinze Jr....and I liked that a lot. On the other, you have some supporting characters which don't fit the film at all and you question why Prinze's character would even associate with these jerks they call his friends. I did like Henry Winkler as Prinze's father...but the rest of the supporting cast just didn't fit in and just seemed like extras from a totally different movie...such as a raunchy comedy like "The Hangover" or "Superbad". The combination of the two just didn't work...and it's a shame, as Stiles (especially) and Prinze were essentially wasted.
I loved the relationship...it was very sweet. I also loved the asides--the times when the characters step out of the fourth wall. Brilliant and enjoyable. But the rest...just didn't fit and seemed a distraction. And, late in the film, they had one of the pair do something out of character and mean-spirited...which left me feeling annoyed. Why??!! Overall, a weird film that had great elements....as well as a lot of crap that really undid so much of the good. Frustrating and I am sure the two leads must have been frustrated as well by this...as the film really could have given a boost to their careers had the writing been consistent.
