Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, when Emily visits the churchyard, the trees indicate that it is summer. In the next scene, when she and Oliver walk in New York, it is autumn/winter. Additionally, the establishing shot leading to the churchyard scene shows the trees to be bare, but the surrounding trees in the shot where Emily walks toward her mom's grave are in full bloom.

For me it was great!
30 October 2005 | by lumierepleineSee all my reviews

I don't know why this movie is so underrated...I think it reflects perfectly how love could be in the real life. Maybe some people prefer depth monologues...but those things only happen in the mind of a writer.I Think the chemistry between the two main characters is awesome...I love Amanda Peet and Ashton Kutcher is very funny. Let's see those kind of movies without prejudices. I don't have anything else to say really...but if I don't make 10 lines i can post my message..So...Maybe, I can't talk about the weather...a nice conversation for lift times....Sunny here, but with some nasty clouds...that's OK? Good night fellas!
