I particularly enjoyed the way the film incorporated an ongoing subtext suggesting that the Greek Gods may be subtly interacting with the tour and tourists. It was just the right touch of whimsy and depth to supply an added dimension to this delightful romantic comedy.
yes, this flick is full of stereotypes; what romantic comedy isn't? afterall, stereotypes are stereotypes because they are recognizable characters from time immemorial: we KNOW these people. so, drop your defenses, relax, and enjoy this romp through greece.
It's a fabulous story... Who can't identify with being frustrated and burned out with a job, or other people, or life in general? Who can't enjoy watching someone letting go of their cynicism and finding their way back to appreciating their own life, again?
This is a fun and romantic comedy with heart and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think "uplifting" was a great word to describe it. I watched it over and over again, and I finally bought the DVD.
If you can't appreciate this one, I submit that the problem is yours...
Nia plays a great part, and looks gorgeous in this movie. According to my wife Alexis Georgoulis (Poupi) also turns out to be quite a hunk! Richard Dreyfuss injects some magic into the storyline and plays a lovely pivotal character.
I would watch this film many times and not get bored. I can really recommend it.

Ok.I LOVE this movie, Maybe because I am biased, and so much of the scenery is perfectly matched to my own experience in Greece.
Not to mention, it is funny and moving.
