    The plot risks bursting under the strain of its coincidences, as Sara and Jon fly to opposite coasts at the same time and engage in a series of Idiot Plot moves so extreme and wrongheaded that even other characters in the same scene should start shouting helpful suggestions.

    The ultimate in deja viewing:an overfamiliar and exasperating game of cat-and-mousie.
  3. Insipid, by-the-numbers romance.
  4. 20
    Does romantic comedy have to come off as sugared stupidity? It does here.

And I've seen a lot of romantic movies that are cliche, but this one stands up among it's piers. The story is incredible predictable, if you see 10 minutes of it, you're pretty sure of whats going to happen. On another topic, the protagonists are selfish persons who destroy others people lives just because of a hunch that in real life would make them lonely and miserable. And that's how I wished them to be at the end. Full Review »
