Trivia

The scene where Emily and Oliver are standing naked behind the car and Oliver says to her that she just "looked" (at his genital area) hadn't primarily been shot for the movie. It was actually a real moment between Amanda Peet and Ashton Kutcher, which the director decided to use for the film afterwards. See more »

Goofs

After leaving the airport, Emily and Oliver are on the train platform. As they're talking, Emily lights a cigarette, takes a few puffs and then drops it and stamps it out. In the next scene she takes another drag on a cigarette without lighting up another, and drops this one and stamps it out. See more »

Quotes

what can i say, i liked this movie.
9 January 2006 | by JoeyySee all my reviews

A lot like love deals with issues in real life. There are many people out there who feel pressured with the "master plan" of having a career, a wife/ husband by the age of 30. The movie is well acted by Amanda Peet not to mention she looks stunning, and though Ashton Kutcher does overact some scenes he delivers a believable character. The problem with the movie was that you don't have enough time to really bond with the characters, and even though this isn't an amazing movie, it is still a good movie and i enjoyed it. The songs in the movie really did help with the mood. This movie did have much more potential but the writing wasn't as good as it could have been. My opinion is this movie is more for romantics, but its still good for the other people too.
