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

Peter Simon: Excuse me?
Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: Stop trying to cast your true love instead of just meeting him.
Peter Simon: When I meet him, I'll know.

Peter Simon: Well, that's easy for you to say! You're flying to Argentina to meet the love of your life!

A great romantic comedy
20 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie had its US premiere last night at Outfest. I was at the screening and was enchanted with everything about this movie. It's an homage to romantic comedies that knows that a romantic comedy isn't anything like real life. The performances, including actors from TV's Heroes and Brothers & Sisters, are great. The script, by the director best known for "Truth or Dare", is funny and charming. This is definitely the best movie I've seen so far at Outfest this year. It may even be the best movie I've ever seen at Outfest, ever!

If you like Notting Hill, Four Weddings & A Funeral or any other romantic comedy of that style, you'll definitely enjoy this little gem as well.
