Julia Roberts is so damn likable that I didn’t mind watching this fairly mediocre movie that was completely predictable. I just love to watch the various emotions spool across her face. Plus, Joan Cusack was in this, which is always a treat.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.

I loathe this poster. It’s so obvious. Not unlike the movie.

Seeing the cover of this movie inspires an instant feeling of revulsion in me. I don't think I've ever seen it, but there's something about making light of a person repeatedly leaving their potential mates at the altar that completely turns me off (especially since Julia Roberts did exactly that to Kiefer Sutherland IIRC). I'm glad you enjoyed it though. A lot of people seem to think Julia Roberts is a terrible actress but I've never had a problem with her.
I remember loving this moving. Right now in class I'm reading a lot about the way our brains are hard-wired (yay for cognitive science) and how we all love a nice tidy ending to our stories (thanks analytical and sequential left brain). I liked this movie and would posit that is why, at least in part!
Whoah! I got all PhD there because I felt guilty about liking this movie. Hee hee.
