Storyline

Emily Jackson lives a fast-paced life. Always on the go, able to talk around the clock, with a sensitive soul she loves playing matchmaker for her friends. It's Emily's gay roommate and frequent companion Peter, who becomes again the subject matchmaking skills when handsome new photographer assistant Paolo arrives at the Vogue offices, where Emily works. She makes it her mission to bring the two men together. Unfortunately for her, she is so busy arranging a love connection between Peter and Paolo that she remains completely blind to the one suitor who longs to provide her with the loving companionship that she so cheerfully arranges for others. And so it does make sense that Peter, a screenwriter in the making, starts telling the story from his own point of view. Written by kerrsmith2306

22 January 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

not good, not bad. only nice. like many films of genre. without great ambitions, fresh and naive, complicated for a better entertainment, few characters in classic positions, not surprise - the recipes is same and it is not easy to give new pieces. but, it is not really a common film. Brittany Murphy does an adorable role and Santiago Cabrera is in perfect character skin. the dialog are not bad, the humor saves many scenes, the plot is so thin than seems be a shadow. short, inspired option for the romantic movies fan as reasonable portion of chocolate for soul. adorable or almost boring, it is difficult to define it more than part of a long commercial product series who must present the life in watercolors .
