Maybe I'm just a sappy romantic, but to be honest, I loved this movie. Oh sure, it has most of the usual cliches, but the point is you don't mind them. You love them. You also love all the characters. Monica Potter is wonderful and proves she can do more than stand next to Robin Williams and Nic Cage and look pretty. Oh she looks beautiful here, but she is also charming, witty, and lovable. The three guys are funny and well acted. The shrink is terrific. This might be a chick flick, but I'm one guy who loved this movie. Don't waste your time with a big studio comedy, go rent this tonight.

Rented on a whim and with nary an expectation, The Very Thought of You proves surprisingly entertaining. The leads, Joseph Fiennes and Monica Potter, are, of course, sufficiently overly-qualified in the areas of talent and beauty as to make one wonder how they were lured into this quirky, unambitious, yet endearing love story -- all the better for us the viewing audience! The cross-cutting story line is cleverly played out between the various persona inamorata and the past and present tenses. I would agree that character development is not all it _could_ be, but this is more a backhanded compliment than a true criticism: I was sad when the time was up and happily could have sat through 30 or 40 more minutes. Those who would turn their noses at the admittedly implausible premise of love at first sight (amid the busyness of Gatwick Airport?) perhaps have forgotten the adrenaline rush acting upon an instant attraction can produce. I, for one, have never had the courage (or perhaps foolhardiness, considering the times we live in...) to offer a charming stranger a ride in his own car in return for dinner served on a balcony under a starlit night -- but I did instantly love the _idea_ of such a scenario. On behalf of 'sports-loving romantics' everywhere, this flick gets my thumbs-up approval and a goofy smile, as well.

When I rented The Very Thought of You at my local video store I wasn't expecting much, but what I found was a charming,funny,and romantic movie. Monica Potter and Joseph Feinnes, who play the leads in the movie, are both talented young actors who should be watched. the supporting cast, which includes Rufus Sewel is excellent as well, I also enjoyed how they presented the story so as to cause the watcher to be somewhat surprised at parts. All and all The Very Thought Of You is a movie that I consider a must rent, if not a must buy.

Funny romantic comedy! If you enjoy Julia Roberts, you will enjoy this movie that is both lighthearted and fast-paced. The plot opens with a american girl(Potter), who on a whim to escape her current life, buys the first plane ticket anywhere for ninety nine dollars, and ends up in London where she meets brits Frank, Daniel, and Lawrence. It is a treat to see Joseph Fiennes in a contemporary film, (much different from the other roles we've seen him in so far) It will be interesting to see his upcoming work in Forever Mine and Enemy at the Gates.

Some people might scoff at my 5 star rating of this film, but compared to most movies made today, it is deserved. I initially watched this movie because I am a huge Joseph Fiennes fan, but I loved everything about it. It is a charming love story, the kind that you wish would happen in your own life. Monica Potter is so much like Julia Roberts it's a little weird at first, but she is quite wonderful. Anyway, I have watched this movie quite a few times, and I will more than likely watch it a few more. After all, one can never get enough of Mr. Fiennes!!

In a totally implausible coincidence 3 English guys, friends, bump into the same, very attractive American girl, unbeknownst to each other. This happens within a few hours of her taking off from Minneapolis and arriving in London - we live in the jet age. From this starting point the plot gets increasingly daffy. She flits in and out of their day driving them crazy, and in a flicker of an eyelid she falls instantly for one of them: Not telling, but if you watch the film you'll soon guess! The lighting is theatrical, and gives the ambience of Miami rather than London. The affection, love (call it what you will), which the three mates have for the American chick (Martha played by Monica Potter) is way stilted, but maybe that's what the script called for: One thing for sure, Monica Potter holds this film together with her delivery of lines, confidence in her role and photogenic presence - I guarantee we are going to see much more of her in the future!

I rented this movie because I saw Monica Potter on the cover and decided to read what it was about and when I did I thought it was worth a rental.I kept thinking it would be the average girl falls for boy comedy and I was wrong.The movie was unlike any romance I have seen in a while.The movie is about a girl who wants to start over in London and runs in to this guy who tries very hard to charm her,but it won't work for her.In London she meets another guy who falls for her,but again he just wasn't for her.Then finds the right one later in the movie.The only thing is,the three guys are all friends.I don't have to say that this movie turns out to be a pleasant treat.Monica Potter is hilareous as the lead.Joseph Finnes is great.The movie is a wonderful romance that will keep you laughing.
A+
