"Having lost the girl of his dreams, Anderson (Jason Biggs) accepts a dare to jump back into the dating scene by proposing marriage to the next girl he sees -- a love-starved waitress named Katie (Isla Fisher), who accepts on a whim. But the road to true love might not be as thorny as the couple once thought. Written and directed by Michael Ian Black, this charming romantic comedy also stars Joe Pantoliano, Mark Consuelos and Michael Weston." courtesy of netflix
this movie is actually ridiculous, all these crazy little scenarios and well it is a movie with Jason Biggs which are usually low standards for me even if i enjoy watching most of his movies. I think if it wasnt for Isla Fisher this wouldnt have been quite as enjoyable, shes so cute and spunky you can't help but like her. but the story line in general is pretty fun. a guy in a coffee shop says "will you marry me" as an opening line to hit on you and she says yes! its a fun concept. you're not missing anything by not watching the movie though.

"When his girlfriend, Summer (Zooey Deschanel), unceremoniously dumps him, greeting-card copywriter and hopeless romantic Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) begins sifting through the year-plus worth of days they spent together, looking for clues to what went awry. As he recalls the good and bad times he spent with the commitment-phobic girl, his heart reawakens to what it cherishes most. Marc Webb directs this uncommon love story. " courtesy of netflix
I LOVED this movie. LOVE LOVE LOVEDDD it. I kinda figured I would I love zooey and joseph gordon-levitt is soo cute. you just feel soo much from this movie, its happy, its unpredictable (although theres not much to predit because they are going from present time back to when he first met her and all the way in between...) but its just a good story, its a real story, and you just wish you were Summer so that Tom would be that in love with you. One day I hope to find a Tom although I guess I may never know if I have a Tom unless I dumped him haha
DEFINITLEY watch it. especially if you already love Zooey Deschanel and Zooey movies.
"Dustin Hoffman stars in this romantic drama as struggling jingle writer Harvey Shine, an aging father who risks losing his job to attend his daughter's London wedding, only to discover that he's not exactly welcome. While seeking refuge in the airport bar, Harvey meets a lonely statistician named Kate (Emma Thompson) and finds himself thrust into an unexpected romance. Both Hoffman and Thompson earned Golden Globe nods for their roles." courtesy of netflix
this movie was a little disappointing in someway, I think I expected more from it. It's a little predictable and even if something you didnt think was going to happen you find yourself saying "of course" it was VERY "movie" it wasnt a real practical story at all and Dustin Hoffman's character is SO sad, its a sad movie because he is such an unfortunate human being. theres a weird ability to relate to him even though most of the stuff you've never gone through. its good acting though, thats for sure.
I wouldn't say "don't see it" but I wouldnt be dying to see it more than once and I wouldn't tell anyone "you have to see it." its not a waste of time...
