Goofs

The mixing equipment in the late husband's shed, while passable for a band, was far more elaborate than would have been necessary for the music heard in the film, as (except for the "lost" song, which had a touch of piano) it was just solo acoustic guitar and solo voice. See more »

A movie that I did like but was almost a little too cookie cutter like to be considered original.
11 March 2016 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"You're the one obsessed with death. My Hunter was obsessed with life." Hannah (Hall) is trying to cope with the death of her husband, and popular singer. She spends her life living in the past and trying everything to keep his memory alive. When Andrew (Sudeikis) shows up wanting to write a book about him he is met with resistance from Hannah. Little by little the more they talk they more they realize they both have something that will help the other one. This is a very good movie that is worth watching, but it also a tad bit generic and cookie cutter like. Most romantic comedies are though so going in I expected that. Sudeikis is great and funny as always, even though this is more serious than we are used to from him. In terms of romantic movies this is one that men will like, maybe more than women. Overall, a movie that I did like but was almost a little too cookie cutter like to be considered original. I give this a B-.
