Destiny. Faith (Marisa Tomei) believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other, from the Ouija board.
Damon Bradley :)
Straight down the line romcom that uses scenic Italian locations to paper over the fact we're supposed to be rooting for a mentally unstable woman behind the guise of following fate.
And Robert Downey Jr looks destroyed in his role as a supposed-to-be-charming-but-actually-creepy amour.
What was it with nineties romcoms' obsession with fate? And with casting Bonnie Hunt as sour best friends?
Pleasant "Rome-antic" comedy (yeah, I'm good) that's rather less than the sum of its parts. Marisa Tomei is a hopeless romantic who's held out her whole life for a man she's never met: Damon Bradley. Aged 11, she got his name via a ouija board, then had it confirmed by a plump mystic. When - 14 years later - she finally buckles and gets engaged to a foot doctor, she's congratulated on the phone by one ... Damon Bradley, and hotfoots it to Italy hot on his trail. It's a fun idea, but the film isn't particularly funny or romantic - it should have spent far more of its 100+ minutes on the relationship between Tomei and charming man-about-town Robert…
The movie pretended to be too much which it was not. Nonetheless it was a good film with nice acting by beautiful tomei.
Awful awful rom-com (not awful because it's a rom-com as there are good ones about). Wasting the time of the people making it, contemptuous of its audience. Brainless clunky plot, horrible characters. Comprehensively and categorically no stars.
Utterly disposable romantic comedy.
A fun romantic comedy with spectacular backdrops.
