A delightful romp of a romantic comedy. What makes it stand out from most other Hollywood romances about love at first sight is that it is a very funny caricature of introverts and extroverts. The movie makes absolutely no pretense about being realistic (someone falls in love in...exactly...thirty seconds - did the director time this scene?). You watch this movie for the facial expressions, the body language, the fleeting touches, for laughing at who is really paying attention, and who is not. Who puts the moves on and who does not. Who calls a woman the most times and who does not.
If you read a book like "Are you my type, Am I Yours? Relationships Made Easy Through the Enneagram" which tells you how to recognize successful and unsuccessful achievers (type 3) and romantics (type 4), and then watch this movie over again, then you will pick up on all kinds of things you don't notice the first time.

At first I thought this film was going to be a typical British film with the typical uptight performances, but Monica Potter allowed a better blend to take place and it turned out to be a pretty much delightful movie. I liked the technique of telling the story in the past and then filling in from the present point of view. There's not a lot of depth here, either in script or acting, but it was a charming little romance. I would say if you're a Joseph Fiennes fan you'll really love it. One thing that was kind of difficult to get past was Monica Potter's resemblence to Julia Roberts. At times it felt like the producers wanted Julia but couldn't get her so we got Monica. Overall though a charming, light romance.
I mainly bought this movie because I loved "I'm with Lucy" which starred Monica Potter. This movie was fun to watch. It's crazy to imagine meeting your soul mate within 48 hours and also his two best friends who also like you. I liked how the story was told in each characters point of view, which was different and unexpected. This is definitely a "chick flick" :)
