LovelyBy a customer from Edinburgh , 21 Nov 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]I am puzzled by the harsh reception of this film! I am not normally a romance person, but I really enjoyed this. It was unusual, it was hilarious in places, it kept me guessing and it managed to surprise me at the end, which hardly ever happens. It's sort of a triple twist ending. If you've read the summary provided then the plot has been partially spoiled, so I can tell you that there is a lot of humour to be found (more than I expected) in the fluency, content and absurdity of D'Onofrio's information about the future.
The film isn't perfect, there is a time about a third of the way in when I think a little editing could have been done, but it really picks up soon after. And I could have done without the final little flashback to Meg Ford, which will make sense to you if you get there. The characters are perhaps not for everyone, as D'onofrio's is exceedingly odd and Tomei's a little self-involved, but I liked them both by the end. No film is perfect and I gave this film a well deserved five stars because it was a very enjoyable couple of hours, and the feeling lingered on pleasantly.
I should warn you though this is one of the more basic DVDs. It has no special features, no subtitles and not even a menu. You put it in and it goes right into the film. When you get to the end it stops. If you press play, it starts again. This is a DVD video tape.

Great movie.By GeoFilm (3 reviews) , 09 Feb 2013Great movie, reminded me of 'Eternal Sunshine'. Loved the intercutting of scenes to finish sentences. Great story, well worth watching.
Watch and enjoy :-)By WendeeDee (1 review) , 19 Dec 2012Loved this film, I liked all the twists and turns. A nice romance, it kept you wondering all the way through but you couldn't guess the ending.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideOnly watched 10 secs of this. Dreary opening credits. Wheird starring out window then cut to the lead and her therapist - all a bit arty. Trying too hard to be different. Cancelled it.
