After her return from Rome, Beth receives a phone call from Joan informing her that she is "front page news," due to her climbing into the Fountain of Love. A cutaway shows a newspaper with the headline "Stupidissima." This translates not simply as "stupid," but rather as "the pinnacle of stupidity." See more »
During the cab ride scene when Beth just arrived, the footage can be obviously seen sped up as the pedestrian on the left side of the screen is seen walking 3x then slowed down to 2x as the cab passed by. See more »
It's been a while since a good romantic comedy has been released and I think this one was pretty good. It had some funny scenes like Beth trying to break the vase at her sister's wedding, the magic scenes with Jon Heder, and Dax Shepherd as the full of himself male model. I also liked the premise of the story with Beth being in Rome and picking up some coins from a fountain of love. By doing so, she releases a spell that the guys who threw the coins in the fountain, will fall in love with her. So, she goes back to New York, and starts being followed by some weirdos professing their love. However she met one guy at the wedding, Nick, that she really likes. The big mystery is was one of the coins she took one Nick tossed. Circumstances lead Beth to think one of the coins is his, so she believes he really doesn't love her out of free will. But true love prevails in the end.
FINAL VERDICT: A sweet short film. I recommend it.
