This is the kind of movie where the lovers don't have to worry about fate keeping them apart -- all they do is manufacture excuses not to be together, because if they didn't, you wouldn't have a movie.
The only reason I was rooting for them to get together was that than they would both be off the market.
An unfortunate casting decision, however, comes close to sabotaging a witty script with fresh insights into the trend of young people postponing marriage while waiting for some grand plan of theirs to materialize.
A pleasant little romantic comedy that doesn't try too hard and has the virtue of doing a few things differently.
A Lot Like Love ... is a cute movie.
Just when you despair that a whole generation could grow up without a decent date movie, without a romantic comedy that works well enough to call its own, Ashton Kutcher goes and surprises you.
This grueling, training-wheel romance comedy covers a six year stretch of time in which Generation Y boy toy Oliver Martin (Ashton Kutcher) slowly realizes that he can't wait for his life plans to gel before committing to his affection for his narcissist
The typical romantic comedy keeps the leads apart or until just before the closing credits. This film falls flat because they engage in sex during the picture's opening sequence.
At least it's not aggressively stupid...A Lot Like Love is an agreeably mediocre movie that can be watched, enjoyed and forgotten about in the space of a single day.
full review in Greek
[Ashton] Kutcher and [Amanda] Peet are likable stars, but A Lot Like Love doesn't have anything original to say.
While not as aggressively mindless as many of its ilk, flick suffers from simple fatigue, as in: We're tired of seeing the exact same love story over and over.
It was enjoyable to watch and it wasn't just your typical Hollywood rom-com and it's worth your time. A must see!
A decent little romantic film, although labeled a Rom-com most of the time it feels more of a drama with a lot of light hearted moments than truly laugh out loud scenes. It did remind me of Serendipity quite a bit, would have to admit that is by far the better film. One of the best of the genre in my opinion.
Still this has a good cast and it was an enjoyable to watch, without being the typical hollywood Rom-com most of the time. Definitely worth checking out.
It's about a boy and a girl who meet on a flight from LA to NY. Ashton plays Oliver a goal oriented guy who thinks he'll have everything he wants in the next 6 years if he works hard for it and Amanda Peet plays Emily, the girl who is supposed to call him after 6 years to find out if everything he aimed for really happened. Throughout the next 6 years or so they meet up here and there in different stages of their lives.
I LOVE this movie, maybe because I can relate to it in a way. It's about always the wrong timing with a certain someone in your life and finding a way to make it work. I enjoyed how they started off with the past, the years in between, and into the present. I'm usually not a fan of Ashton Kutcher movies, but he did well in here and wasn't annoying. The characters also had great chemistry, which really made it work.
"There's nothing better than a great romance... to ruin a perfectly good friendship."
On a flight from Los Angeles to New York, Oliver and Emily make a connection, only to decide that they are poorly suited to be together. Over the next seven years, however, they are reunited time and time again, they go from being acquaintances to close friends to ... lovers?
This was a pretty average romance comedy. I went to see it mostly because of Amanda Peet, and she looked good as usual. They do a decent job trying to avoid some of the cheesy elements usually found in the genre, but the basics remain. Some of the things that happened in the movie were pretty unrealistic. The movie attempts to explore the subject of mistimed romance, as well as difficulties in commitment and the whole "You don't know what you had 'till you've lost it" thing. Overall, a fairly romantic film with a healthy dose of humor.
