    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.

    Does romantic comedy have to come off as sugared stupidity? It does here.
  3. 30
    The ultimate in deja viewing:an overfamiliar and exasperating game of cat-and-mousie.
  4. Insipid, by-the-numbers romance.

    If you are looking for a rom-com genre film with a twist, Serendipity is your film. With a wonderful use of light, design, and scene set up, a person feels the passage of time and feels immersed in the settings. The screenplay practically pops off screen with the chemistry of Cusack and Beckinsale. A true hit for any night of chick flicks! Full Review »
