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 »

Beautiful Movie with a lesson
6 December 2009 | by faiz-canSee all my reviews

this movie isn't just another average romantic movie, there's lot to be learned from it. if you are somewhere in your 20s, you can probably relate yourself to this movie like i did.. The movies takes u to the crucial time of your life when you have to make tough decisions of your life regarding future,career etc and prioritize everything. it shows us what is more important material or love..? well i wont disclose more of it, i would recommend that watch this movie alone so that you can really feel it. its not that sort of movie which you watch with bunch of friends on weekends. in end, impressive writer and acting! peace Faizan
