Trivia

In the scene where Carter, Lucy and Paige are trying to pick a movie at the theater, one of their choices is "The Age of Adeline" which wasn't released until 2015.

The mention of a film that would be released several years later is irrelevant. It was just a fictional title that coincidentally had a similar title to one used later. The 2015 film, which was announced in 2010, was actually titled The Age of Adaline with an "a" not an "e". The 2015 film was not based on a book, but was a new work. See more »

Waste of time??
20 April 2007 | by WheresMyJimHalpertSee all my reviews

I had been looking forward to this movie for weeks. Every time I saw a trailer or ad, I'd become really happy looking at it, and anticipating the film. Adam Brody is relatively new to being on film, not just in "The OC" capacity, and I throughly enjoyed him as Carter Webb. However, I thought that ITLOW lacked in what it mainly advertised, the plot of Brody and Stewart's character was a main lead in the ads, but I was unhappy to find that their scenes were very minimal and basically had little to the plot. Webb seemed to be the lost soul looking for guidance, which he clearly found with Meg Ryan's character. I love Meg Ryan films, but this was probably the first time I found myself pitying her character, and I saw her as almost weak and unfortunate.

This movie did have its high points, I loved seeing the interacting between Webb and the younger Hardwicke girls on their "date," and some other moments between Carter and his grandmother.

Yet, was totally let down after watching Lucy and Carter's "relationship develop." I suppose that this movie wasn't totally supposed to be about the relationships between Carter and Sarah, and Carter and Lucy, but more about the growth of the mother/daughter relationship, as I came to learn later.

I thought the hype for this movie was overrated, and I was actually let down by some of it, but I do see that Adam Brody has a lot to offer in the future, and I can see him doing great projects now that he seen more in the movie capacity.
