3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings......., November 30, 2005
This review is from: A Lot Like Love (Full Screen Edition) (DVD)
This reviewers take on "A Lot Like Love" is pretty mixed. First of all, this movie is not really a comedy. Besides the scene where Amanda Peet walks right into a glass sliding door (hilarious) the movie really isn't that funny at all. The movie is much more of a drama. I would say that about 80% of this movie is a drama and about 20% is comedy. The movie is marketed as a romantic comedy, so many viewers may feel a bit disenchanted when the film proves otherwise.

As a drama, the movie itself is not all that bad. It tends to lag and drag and is all too predictable, however there is no denying the charm of Kutcher and Peet. While their chemistry isn't the greatest, it is still very prevalent throughout the film. The film revolves around a series of encounters with Kutcher and Peet throughout the years. They always seem to be drawn to one another but previous commitments and/or plans always seem them to pull them apart until the next chance encounter. Basically, the film comes down to a question of "will they ever be together for good"? What do you think? No surprise there! However, the journey getting there plays out a little too long in this reviewers opinion.

The soundtrack is good, & the acting and performances of the two leads are credible. All in all...worth a one time viewing if you've got the time. One very annoying thing about this film are Amanda Peet's BAD BAD wigs through the first half. I'm sorry, but with the film's budget you'd think they could do better!

Rent.... do not buy. You more than likely will not watch this movie more than once.
