Storyline

Sam Roberts thinks he has all the answers: the purpose of life, the meaning of love, the plan for a perfect future. Until Charly walks into his life. As different as Salt Lake City and New York City, Sam and Charly are thrown together by circumstance and repelled by differences. He's scheduled and idealistic. She's spontaneous and cynical. He's guarded and practical. She's open and mischevious. He's a Mormon. She isn't. Differences spark interest, though, as Charly finds depth in Sam's idealism and Sam seeks the vibrance of Charly's joie de vivre. But all is not smooth in the Rockies, as their relationship accelerates - cultural differences, family issues, former loves and life-altering challenges threaten to shake things up.

I can't believe this crap.
8 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

My uncle is a Mormon from Sweden. Went to Canada 35 years ago to escape Armageddon,or something like that.

15 minutes in the movie I started to think that this film was religious. After 25 minutes I was sure. Lucky me I went in to IMDb and found out that it was true.

One sentence in the movie destroyed it totally: -"I live in New York. We have museums of evolution", or something. -"But I believe what I read in the bible"

I can't believe this crap. I turned the movie off and hide it so my children doesn't have to find out yet how much grown people lies to themselves.

Cute girl though.
