If you are someone who is at a pivotal point in their life, if you are in love, in love with love, or just enjoy interesting twists in plot and romance/drama that keeps you glued to the screen, then this movie is for you.

I feel this is probably the best performance of Jeff Goldblum's career, and I am glad that he took this role on since it probably wasn't the type to gain him a lot of exposure. He made a total fluff film in Independence Day so he is allowed :P Anne Heche is surprisingly good. Wonderful actually, I 'feel in love' with her and all she wanted. I sympathize with taking such a chance for real love.

The closure provided between Goldblum's character and his 'old life' live in girlfriend was welcome, as they both realized what a sham they were living with before, and that they are happier now.

I sympathize with Goldblum's character in other jobs I have done/passed up - he was an insurance salesman, screwing over people with things they don't really need, for a check that will never replace the person.

This movie is a thinker. A story illustrating the human condition. A story about the SEARCH for love and happiness, and what really can make one in love and happy. A story that cuts through the bull (and there is a lot of it!) and reminds you of what is pure and good. It gives you hope. Take the time to see this movie.
