... one of the hands-down better rom-coms
2 November 2014 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

Relationships are difficult.. they all have issues. Do these two stay together long term.. who knows.. watch again the very end of the film from the wedding scenes... and you decide. Ritter and Weixler do a wonderful job in this smart, engaging film. Many one-on-one romance films are quite enjoyable. But very rarely do you watch a romantic comedy and wish it would go on longer. This is a relatively short film at 80 minutes... and yet one of the more entertaining of the group. Obviously, it's all because of the two of them. Jess Weixler is not a huge Hollywood name.. for this film they matched up very well though, and she is exceptional. It's a favorite film... with a great ending track.. 'Overture' by Patrick Wolf ... bit.ly/1DOORTK ) PS.. this is a film you must watch a second time.. but start from the very end going back (overlapping) 10-15 minutes each time. This might be the only film you can do this and get more out of it than you'd ever believe possible.
