Trivia

The hat that Roe is wearing in the scene when he is on stage in London, singing the song, "Smokin & Cryin" he is wearing the director's favorite baseball cap. A few seconds before shooting, Wolf decided that the hat he had on for the scene wasn't quite right, and she threw her own baseball cap on him instead. See more »

A bit unrealistic
13 February 2019 | by luciabcn86See all my reviews

This movie would be fine if the guy hadnt left the girl at the altar at the beginning of the movie and then disappeared for 10 years. I have a hard time believeing that any woman who that happened to would just fall back in love with the guy without so much as an apology from him. She punched him once as payback and then they were back on good terms. It feels like most of the movie overlooked that unforgivable first scene and pretended it happened happened. All in all a nice story but felt really head-in-the clouds unrealistic. This girl should know her own worth!!
