Goofs

Anna calls Jeremy (in Dublin) from the B&B at approximately 8:30am on a Sunday morning. He tells her that he just got off the phone after learning that the apartment was theirs. With a 5 hour time difference it is highly unlikely that the deal was closed in Boston at 3:00 am - on a Sunday, no less. See more »

Realtor: [cut to high-rise apartment] Anna Brady, I'm so happy to have you here. This is the third open house and not one bite.

Anna: I'm a stager. I stage apartments *for* realtors. I transform ordinary spaces into something special. Most people don't know what it is they want until I show them, and so many places need my help. - Not the Davenport, course.

Romantic Comedy in the Classic Mold
9 January 2010 | by kevncarlinSee all my reviews

It has been years since my wife and I have seen a new romantic comedy that did not offend or annoy us with some element or another. Even our favorite current director in the genre, Richard Curtis, slips in a bit of unnecessary Chaucerian vulgarity. At his best, it redeems itself, but it seems a fixation (artistic or commercial, I wonder?).

This comedy could have been directed by Frank Capra. It is rooted, it is humanistic, and it is earnestly funny in spots.

She (played by Amy Adams) is an American career woman who has responded to her father's (played by John Lithgow) financial misadventures by forging a life of success and security. He is a cardiac specialist who likes to consult on surgeries from the dinner date by IM and share the pictures at the table. The other he is a cranky Irish tavern owner on the brink of ruin conducting her to Dublin after her own travel misadventure because he needs the money to stave off ruin.

Ireland serves as the fairyland where, at the end of a long overcompensation for her father's flibbertigibbet ways, she finds her total control solution also has unfortunate limitations.

Excellent work.
