Trivia

Actress Birdie M. Hale, who was more than 90 years old during production of "A Lot Like Love" (2005), played the role of an old woman with a singular line ("Would you like to sit next to your girlfriend?") on a New York subway train early in the film. She had a very similar role as an elderly passenger on a New York subway train - also encouraging the two protagonists to get together - at the end of Coming to America (1988). See more »

Good movie for those that enjoy passion
10 March 2006 | by vanclanoregonSee all my reviews

Probably the best romantic comedy my wife and I have seen in twenty years. Although we have always been a fan of Ashton Kutcher, this movie separates from his previous achievements. His chemistry with Amanda Peete is more believable than any other actress he has performed with. You actually fall into to the story as someone you might have known in life, whether it was a friend or someone that remains in your thoughts from years past.

To knick-pick the movie on plot or commercialization is to miss the writers passion for what he/she is trying to convey. Take the movie for what it is at face value and that is to travel through their relationship in all the what-if's, all the heart breaks and joys. If you let yourself do that you will enjoy a great story with someone you at one time shared the same passion with. -Curt & Tam
