There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.

I was excited when I saw the cast of this film only to find out that it had a pretty poor rating. A friend had even recommended it to me, but I questioned her judgment compared to what apparently 30k people have thought about it. But I finally decided to give it a go, and it was worth it. I honestly don't know why it has such a low rating. The film is definitely slower, but it's the feel of the movie. I thought it was interesting, romantic, and funny. It even made me laugh out loud a few times. I loved Emma's character but Bradley Cooper's character took a little warming up to. If you go into it with an open mind, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
