When Jack gets rescued by Maria, a superstitious Portuguese beauty, he has no idea that his life and luck are both about to change. During this accidental "first date", Jack and Maria project idealistic images of themselves -- images that are humorously contradicted through a series of flash-forwards to their future life together.Written by

This was an enjoyable, cute and funny movie. Not the greatest, but fun enough. I'm sure that some will compare this to My Big Fat Greek Wedding and some comparisons are apt.
Maria is beautiful, and charming and extremely quirky. And she snores. Jack is one of those earthy guys who doesn't let anything go by without making a joke. Maria's family is very traditional. Her father would be tough on any man.
This movie is about the two falling in love, and about trying to make it work in a family where everything is stacked against Jack from the start. The two have so many differences that you would think they would be better off with someone else.
There are funny moments, and sweet moments.
