I have never been a big fan of Ashton Kutcher's since most of his role consist of him being the annoying bumbling fool such as his role in FOX's 'That '70s Show' and films such as 'Dude Where's My Car' and 'Just Married'. The only film of his that I liked was his performance in 'The Butterfly Effect'. So when this film was first announced I never gave it a second thought until I saw the trailer. The trailer looked good and even though Kutcher was in it, it also starred the beautiful and talented Amanda Peet who I have loved since her role on the short lived WB series 'Jack & Jill'. I finally saw this film on DVD and I was pleasantly surprised at how good this film was. Not only did Amanda Peet give an excellent performance but Ashton Hutcher also did a good job as well. Even though it was a comedy there are other aspects to the film including romance and hints of drama. It is a wonderful film that I believe both men and women alike will find very entertaining and romantic. Over the coming years I see this film becoming a very popular date film.

This is a great movie. Probably targeted for the 20 something crowd, but I can tell you that I am a mid 40s divorced guy and I truly enjoyed the movie. I saw the movie on cable tv and decided it was worth the bucks to get a copy for my library. Some have said the story line is predictable but I did not find an issue with the story at all. I think there are some universal themes that make this a really decent movie. I was never a big Aston Kucher fan but I really like the way he portrayed his character. I ended up really rooting for him. Amanda Peet is obviously very easy on the eyes, and she does a very nice job of showing depth and vulnerability. I really like the ending. I did not find it predictable, and I have seen so many movies where you get the feeling that the writer just ran out of energy, but I did not get that vibe at all with this movie. I have not checked out the added items yet on the CD - but even without them this DVD is worth your money...

When you think of Ashton Kutcher, you're apt to think of a movie like... "Dude Where's My Car?", which in my opinion was not the best of films. It's hard to believe, but a romantic comedy such as this was actually quite enjoyable. It starts off kind of slow, but it becomes absorbing as the movie continues on. Warning to all the guys out there though, this is pretty much a chick flick. I'm a guy, but I happen to enjoy the soft subtle love story every now and then.

The movie begins seven years ago when a man named Oliver (Kutcher) sees a girl named Emily (Amanda Peet) break up with her boyfriend just before a flight to New York. They're both on a flight to New York. When Oliver has to go into the bathroom to clean up, he's followed by Emily. This is the first of several encounters they'll have over the years.

As the two explore New York, they have a chance to get to know one another. A few things in the beginning start off a little too slow, Oliver tries to go after Emily and she contantly shuns him away. Three strikes within the first twenty minutes of the film, and Oliver already strikes out.

Oliver also starts off as the sort of guy no girl in their right mind would want. He still lives with his parents, he has no car, and he's unemployed. The only thing he has is his charm. The two finally decide on a bet that in six years he won't live with his parents and he'll be successful. They drink to it, and Oliver gives up his parents phone number, claiming that when she calls, she won't find him. Throughout the film, those six years will pass.

The film first jumps about three years into the future in which Emily's boyfriend has just walked out on her on New Years. There's a party and she has no one to go with now.

I ignored this movie when it came out in theaters. I had assumed it would be dumb and corny. Then I saw it on one of the movie channels and bought the DVD the same night. It's every bit as funny as it's supposed to be, and much better overall than you think it's going to be. My wife is listening to the soundtrack and dancing around the room as I write this. Even the music is good. Ashton Kutcher does an excellent job playing Oliver, the man with the 6 year plan for the perfect life. Amanda Peet is extremely entertaining as the phantom girlfriend, here today and gone tomorrow, only to reconnect a few years later again and again. Amanda and Ashton are clearly having a genuinely good time together as they make this film, and you see that it's real when you watch the bloopers in the extra features. The ending is not entirely predictable, although you can't say you didn't see it coming. But even so, it doesn't matter because it's what you wanted anyway. This is a good movie. Trust me. You'll like it.

Again, didn't expect much out of a movie with Aston Kutcher, I gear up usually for crude humor and a few brainless laughs, but this movie was different, and he actually showed he could be a decent actor. Amanda peet was perfectly cast along side him. An entertaining story of love that took 6 years to perfect, and along the way they discovered things that were "a lot like love", but will true love find them in the end. Will Oliver (Kutcher) get his 6 year plan complete, and will Emily (Peet) be paying him $50 for the bet they make when they first meet in New York. It move along at just the right pace, and not overdone or to long either, keeps you hooked. So check it out for a romantic comedy, its not to shabby.
