4.0 out of 5 stars Romantics, read on! Cynics, don't bother! July 13, 2006
I read all the reviews of this movie before writing mine. I LOVE THIS MOVIE! I've watched it at least 50 times and it makes me cry each time. I know, I'm a hopeless romatic and probably a total fool, but this movie is so sweet. I think Michael Vartan (!!) and Natasha Henstridge have chemistry that works in this movie. I also like the subplot of Henry and Tracy and them not knowing their best friends are the ones who are getting married to people they are not suited for. Maybe the writing and editing are poor, I'm not educated to comment in that area, but the movie is funny in many parts, depicting typical New York snobs such as the salesperson at Bulgari. The fact that they fall in love during the weekend they are both planning their weddings to other people is a fun twist. They do "the right thing" by not being together until they break up with their respective intendeds. Unlike most real life. Maybe love at first sight isn't smart or lasting or whatever, but remember - IT'S A MOVIE! It's for entertainment value, and I feel entertained each time I watch it. I like the music and wish I could find the soundtrack to buy. I have watched this movie with two of my guy friends, and both of them cried, although not as much as I did. The part that always gets me is at the end when they are in the park, pretending to fly to Europe and then she says she can't do it. Notice the look on Michael's face as the camera fades away...then the song..."have you ever loved somebody so much it made you cry?" Yes, I have. Yes, I do. Enjoy this movie for what it is, fun, romantic, with a (thankfully) happy ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Michael Vartan....WOW! February 16, 2003
By J
I can't get enough of this guy! Why he doesn't get more work I'll never know. The scene in the park, when both have eyes closed and he says "Come with me" and takes her hand.....I melted like ice cream on a hot day! Takes me back to my favorite scene in "Moonstruck (Deluxe Edition)" during the opera. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I felt it needed a "love scene." It would have given me a chance to see Vartan with his shirt off! Final words: it ended with my favorite song! If you've ever been in love, you HAVE to see this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Michael Vartan Scores Again As Leading Man November 15, 2002
This is the second film I've seen where Vartan is the leading man. He again completely delivers and is probably this film's greatest joy. The plot is nothing earth shattering but it is a good vehicle for him. He checks into a hotel to plan his wedding and meets a woman who is there to do the same. Problem is that they are both scheduled to marry two rich but total sharks in the corporate world. She is a teacher and he is a policeman on leave of absence for a failed hostage negotiation. So they are really not in synch with their intendeds. Thus, they start falling in love with one another as they plan to wed these two other people. There is also a cute supporting role couple, the best friends of each of the leads. I really enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old fashion Romantic movie for the family ! February 2, 2003
I thought this was a throw back to the old days. I enjoyed being able to watch the film with my kids who are teenagers and my wife and not have to feel uncomfortable about the typical bathroom humor you find filmmakers lowering themselves to do inorder to get a cheap life. It was a touching little film, fun moments and it sent a nice message. Mostly what I enjoyed was the fact that even in a genre that has been done a thousand times the writer thought of a unique way to bring the two stars (Natasha Henstridge and Michael Vartan) back together at the end. If you are not a cynical person you will love this film ... if you are I suggest renting one of those teem movies that have toilet jokes, sight gags and charachters that don't exsist in real life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like a Neon Sign February 21, 2007
While I enjoy the romantic comedy genre, the script for this film plods and the story is so predictable that it actually was a bit tedious. That's not to say that the romantic aspects of the film aren't also enjoyable, because I did enjoy the film -- it just took me about 5 times to sit through the DVD. Michael Vartan from the Alias TV series fame has been in several romantic comedies like "Never Been Kissed" (1999) & "Monster-in-Law" w/ Jane Fonda & Jennifer Lopez (2005). Vartan is an interesting actor. Born in Paris, he began his early film career in French-speaking films. He has a charming boyish sincerity that plays well, even in this DVD. Natasha Henstridge came to attention in the Species series where she played in all three of those movies as well as in "The Whole Ten Yards" & "Bounce." The plot is predictable with the two fiancees each planning their weddings solo & then discovering that they've fallen in love. Olivia d'Abo, who is the daughter of Michael a'Abo from the rock band Manfred Mann, plays Vartan's wealthy fiancee that eventually gets dumped. The coincidences in the movie are a bit too numerous, pointing like neon signs to the ending where Vartan's Charlie Hudson & Henstridge's Anna Penn fall in love. This is a nice evening's entertainment, particularly if you really enjoy the romantic comedy genre. While Vartan & Henstridge do well enough, they still can't surmount the material. Enjoy!
