Pretty GoodBy Christopher Powell from Stafford , 23 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Down To You is another in the long line of romantic comedies that follows the ?Boy meets girl, something goes wrong, etc? that has been done a thousand times. So why am I recommending this? Because it?s a genuinely engaging film that is just that little bit better than most of the genre.
I took a chance on this movie because I am a big fan of Julia Stiles, but if, like me ? you would rather have a root canal than watch Freddie Prinze Jr - then prepare to be (slightly) amazed.
Playing Al, a college student who wants to be a chef like his tv chef dad (Henry Winkler), Prinze meets fellow student Imogen (Stiles) in a bar. They hit it off straight away and form a picture perfect couple. Much like real life, the honeymoon period fades and we see the relationship gradually deteriorate. Both the ascent of the relationship and the decline are handled deftly without resort to over the top scenarios or histrionics. You will feel for both parties without taking sides and hope for an eventual reunion, which may or may not come ? I shan?t spoil it for you!
Its more ?Rom? than ?Com? as the supporting cast who are there for purely laughs generally fall flat (although a walk-on by Aston Kutcher is surprisingly good). Down To You more than compensates with the ?Rom?. The strength of the film lies in the two leads who play off each other incredibly well giving a good portrayal of a young couple in a relationship without ever getting overly mushy or schmaltzy.
It may be fairly formulaic and hold no surprises but is enjoyable and worth 90 mins of your life if you are in a romantic mood.

Failure to all romancesBy Abnormal (93 reviews) , 20 Nov 2013It started off pretty good but then went down hill pretty fast after that. This is the kind of film you'd watch once and forget most of what happened because you were quite bored watching it. Thumbs Down. A failure to all romances.
If you value your time, don't watch.By a customer , 08 Nov 2013This film was awful! Terrible acting (sorry Fed I still love you though) but it was cheesy, unnatural, no flow to the script or the narrative. It was boring, predictable, and when it got interesting I thought the film was properly started ... then it ended. The film seems as though it was written overnight for a deadline the next day. So disappointing and I'm annoyed I won't get my time back.
Only watch if really bored.By a customer , 21 May 2013Quite a slow film, i found it to be boring overall. But, it's okay if you're really bored i suppose.
Dirty - Dirty - Dirty start.By a customer , 10 May 2013I chose not to watch this all the way through as i found the very first parts of the begin very rude . dirty - dirty - dirty.

A nice film!By Camron_Killa_Cam (9 reviews) , 14 Apr 2013Nice film :) maybe the characters were a little one dimensional. But love the 90's vibe! & where did Julia Stiles go?
