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

Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: Hmm?
Peter Simon: What are you doing?
Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: Reading this delicious recipe for beet root salad with margarine and balsamic vinegar dressing.
Peter Simon: What are you doing with James?
Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: Nothing.
Peter Simon: You broke up with him a month ago.
Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: I know. It's just sex. He fills a void. Literally.
Peter Simon: I don't see how you expect to meet someone new if you spend all of your time with your ex.
Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: Good point. Maybe I should get back together with James so I spend less time with him.

funny, with brilliant dialogues
26 August 2010 | by ladymfSee all my reviews

I hate romantic comedies so I didn't see this movie until very recently. I watched it on the advice of a friend and it was a good choice: the movie is smart and really funny and I could not stop laughing through the whole movie (especially i liked Tallulah character and her hash brownies).

Can't call this movie outstanding but it's definitely worth watching for the brilliant dialogues, non-vulgar British humor and self-irony. And for the hot Brittany Murphy, of course. I'm surprised to see it's only rated 6.2 here.. Guess those who prefer "unsexy" American comedies like The Proposal (Sandra Bullock), The Ugly Truth, etc won't enjoy this movie.
