Watch! Watch! Watch!By DanielMcGregor from KENT , 11 Oct 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I first saw this movie several years ago, I rented it without knowing much about it and was really impressed with it. It's funny and quirky, if you like that kind of thing then you'll love this movie. It has a great soundtrack (Ash, Oasis), a top class cast (Holly Hunter, Stanley Tucci, Delroy Lindo, Ian Holm) and a story that with more twists than a slinky.
I really recommend giving it a try.

A life less ordinaryBy toddyquaker (89 reviews) from Knutsford , 18 Aug 2010My wife and I are always pleased to view titles with these stars. They are usually on our wave length and can usually please.
Wacky classicBy Renp (5 reviews) from Llanwnnen , 13 Aug 2010I saw this years ago and thought I would check it out again. I forgot how wacky it was and how insane Holly Hunter's performance is.
I loved it just as much the second time round, it's such a classic!
A lot less ordinary!!By fizzgig (3 reviews) from St. Neots , 07 Jul 2010Very silly. but incredibly funny, I couldnt stop laughing. Such a great storyline and just the right amount of romance.
2/10: disappointingBy Moonwalker (38 reviews) from Dorking , 14 Dec 2009I read later this is described as a 'screwball comedy' - which translates to me as 'You'll like this if you're a wacky fun type of person who enjoys wacky fun types of people doing wacky fun types of things' (You get my drift). I'm not and I didn't.
BrilliantBy Dawn6791 (12 reviews) from UK , 26 Sep 2009If you like quirky comedies then this must be up your street. Although slightly slow to start the movie really starts when Ewan McGregor's character kidnaps the spoilt and rich character of Cameron Diaz. What I liked about this movie is the great soundtrack and the additional theme of the angels that are tasked with ensuring humans fall in love. The two threads interweave with splendid results. All in all the film reminds me off the earlier Baz Luhrmann films
