Boy meets girl, complication ensue. . . you know the drill, but who cares? Enjoy it anyway
Wonderfully fun movie. A bit treacly? Umh, sure - it's a romantic comedy. I suspect it will become a future guilty pleasure for me.
The dialogue is excellent; there were several times it had me laughing out loud - and I was watching it with subtitles. The banter between the two lead actors reminded me of "When Harry Met Sally" in pace and wit, but earthier.
The actors are beautiful - he carries off a hint of gray and she has a lovely Bohemian vibe - and they have nice chemistry on screen. Nobody is perfect in the movie, and the two exes aren't completely horrible, which makes it all the more approachable.
