  • Summary: Jack is a 30-something advertising exec in New York City who lives a life forged from routine. He is successful, stylish, and entirely bored...until he meets Jill. In her 20s, fiery, and adorable, Jill enters Jack's life like a hurricane. They meet and instantly connect, launching into a romance. Together they write a "Manifesto of Rules to Live By," beginning with "Rule 1 – Be Honest." But after too many instances of Jill's disappearing, Jack forces Jill to reveal her secret.

  1. Reviewed by: Sam Sweet
    More farce might have served the film well; as Parise draws from a playbook of medical melodrama and romantic-comedies clichés, her moral about living outside the box becomes harder and harder to swallow.
  2. Reviewed by: Peter Debruge
    Parise no doubt intends the pic's attention to the disease -- plus animal adoption and fair trade coffee -- to be socially enlightening, but it feels suspiciously like sympathy-mongering.
  3. Reviewed by: Robert Abele
    Bubbly to the point of indigestion and mechanical about ticking off the romantic trajectory.
