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
The town official who is supposed to marry Jacks and Paolo is portrayed by Richard Wilson, who also portrayed Gaius in Merlin (2008). Beginning in 2008, Santiago Cabrera, who portrays Paolo in this film, co-starred with Richard Wilson on Merlin, in the recurring role of Sir Lancelot. See more »
Hers' was a very strange death.. and then her boyfriend goes and dies of almost the exact same causes a year later in the same house.. seriously very strange. Anyway, this film makes her loss that much more poignant, for this production is pure Brittany Murphy at her charming best, and it could very well be the best movie she's made. And Matthew Rhys matches her stride for stride... the two of them making this one of the most enjoyable rom-com's of the year. Sure it's the totally predictable formula, but it's fairly well written, and the overall cast is solid. You can watch a good number more films of any genre, and this will most likely be among the top for ease of enjoyment.
