Editorial Reviews

Piper Perabo lights up the screen as Rachel, a blushing bride whose perfect nuptials take a surprising turn at the altar. An innocent glance between Rachel and an unexpected wedding guest is all it takes to spark a 'love at first sight' romance with a surprising twist -- the object of Rachel's affection is a smart and sensuous... woman! Their shocking romance causes quite a stir amongst her family and friends as Rachel is forced to choose between her husband and the girl of her dreams. Say 'I do' to the wonderfully witty film that Cosmopolitan calls "a refreshing romantic comedy."

I loved this delightful little movie. Despite its girl-loves-girl plot, it shouldn't be pigeonholed as a lesbian romance. This is romantic comedy at its finest and can be appreciated by anyone, irrespective of orientation.

The film is an anglo-american-german co-production, filmed in England with a largely English cast. Piper Perabo does a good job with a creditable English accent which apart from an occasional slip, is largely believable. Rachel (Piper Perabo) is struck by a case of love-at-first-sight on her wedding day. Unfortunately it isn't for her handsome, sweet, kindly, husband-to-be but the female florist who's been hired for the occasion. Confused at first, she befriends the florist who does understand her feelings and reciprocates whole-heartedly. As she is now married, how can things end happily? In a way, they don't. Part of me was sad at how things turned out because these were all such lovable characters. But the producers make sure that no heart remains broken for too long. And like all rom-coms, this pedals crazily towards a happy ending, cheered on by the Turtles' "Happy Together."

Aside from Piper Perabo, everyone else is British. Look out for the supporting roles and cameos by various British actors. Lena Headey (The Brothers Grimm) plays Luce the florist, Matthew Goode (Match Point) is the husband, Anthony Head (Buffy) is Rachel's Dad, Celia Imrie (Calendar Girls / Love in a Cold Climate) is Rachel's Mom, Ben Miles (Coupling) is Heck's work buddy, Eva Birthistle (A Fond Kiss) is Luce's lesbian friend.

Like most rom-coms, there is extensive use of pop songs. The main one here is The Turtles' upbeat and infectious "Happy Together" whose first lines contribute the title of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unconventional but undeniably sweet romantic comedy November 18, 2006
Format:DVD
It goes without saying - or maybe it doesn't - that this is not your typical romantic comedy. Most people fall in love and then get married, but Imagine Me & You starts with a wedding and ends with true love. And most married men worry about their wives leaving them for another man - not another woman. Truly, though, this film should not be pigeon-holed as one of "those" films, for it's a really sweet story that says more about true love than most of today's raunchy romances. Love and sex are not the same thing, and it's always nice to find a film that reflects that. Don't go into this film expecting to see two lovely ladies rolling around naked in the hay, as there's no nudity whatsoever. This is a sweet film, not a prurient one.

I love Piper Perabo, especially now that's she proven she's just as talented as she is gorgeous. She's an unusual choice for the leading role in this film, an American actress surrounded by an impressive British cast, but her accent feels natural and makes for a most comfortable fit. Her character, Rachel, seems the picture of happiness as she marries Heck (Matthew Goode), a true good guy who has long been her best friend. Walking down the aisle, however, she happens to exchange a life-changing glance with Luce (Lena Headey), the florist who supplied the flowers for the wedding. She soon strikes up a friendship with Luce, initially trying to set her up with one of Heck's friends. Even before she learns that Luce is gay, though, she finds herself thinking about her more and more. Never having believed in love at first sight, she doesn't know how to react to these strange but powerful new feelings she is experiencing for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars what? they're gay? May 12, 2006
Format:DVD
I saw this movie when it came out and fell in love with it.

It doesn't try to overwhelm you with a liberal agenda of some sort. (Becoming a lesbian doesn't inherently make you liberal, although, in my world, it would.)

It doesn't revolve the story around a lusty sex scene. (I enjoy them, but there's something to be said for the romantic simplicity of the kiss.)

It doesn't try to squeeze in every single member of the lgbtiq community like we're an amusing freak show. (With some movies, I find myself yelling, "It's a gay movie, I get it!")

...This movie simply tries to tell the story of two girls in love, nothing else. It does it in a quirky, Notting-Hill type of way and that makes it all the better. At least for people like myself, who are sick of imagining Harry, of When Harry Met Sally, as a curly-haired butch.

By being so formulaic and true to the romantic comedy genre, this movie becomes radical. You WANT Rachel to follow her heart and get her mate, who just happens to be another woman. It doesn't even dawn on you that what you're cheering for is lesbianism--why is this such a dividing issue again?

4.0 out of 5 stars Please don't consider this a "lesbian film"!!! April 27, 2007
By MLRapp
Format:DVD
Considering "Imagine Me & You" to be a "lesbian film" does not do it justice in terms of the totality of the film. By saying that, the film becomes pigeonholed into a narrow category in which many closed-minded viewers will miss out on a wonderful film they may have really connected with and understood. Rather, viewers should think of it a beautiful love story: a woman confused about her feelings for someone other than her husband, and how she chooses to act on those feelings.

The film was extremely well done and I'm impressed that it was directed by a man. All stereotypes aside, I am surprised at how well he captured the various relationships and presented the subject matter in a casual, non-gratuitous and relatable way.

The acting was great- Piper Perabo and Lena Headey are very natural actresses. It was refreshing watching a romantic comedy with actresses other than the usual few (i.e. Reece Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, etc). Matthew Goode was adorable Piper Perabo's husband and without ruining anything, the way his character ends up reacting to his wife's situation was(to me at least) surprising, yet it seemed right.

I recommend this film for anyone - male, female, old, young, of all backgrounds....I think many people will be able to connect with the characters and/or the siuations they find themselves in, as love is universal. It is definitely a film worth renting and adding to your collection.
