The hotel manager enters the lift with Chris, Marisa and Ty but by the end of the scene, the manager does not seem to have had an opportunity to leave politely, but is nonetheless no longer there. If viewed in "Anamorphic" widescreen (2.40:1), at about 31:40 minutes, at the very right edge of the screen after the elevator bell dings, you can see part of the manager's (John Bextrum's) back, leaving the elevator just before the French lady in the black hat crosses in front of the camera. After all, he was the last person into the lift, and the closest one to the door, so he would be the first person to exit as well. See more »

So you'll know where I'm coming from, some of my favorite movies are "Parent Trap," "Father of the Bride," "Kate & Leopold." If you like these kinds of movies that leave you feeling good and happy about life, then you'll enjoy this tastefully done movie as well. I could have done without a certain scene between the two, but this movie has a lot to offer, and has a moral to teach as well. It has strong characters of positive principles, and there's even an "older man mentor," like from "Pretty Women," that adds that wholesome touch to the film.
