Love this movie. Actually think I enjoy it more everytime I see it. Has a bit of everything in it. 80's flashbacks, and just a really sweet little story.
Cassie Hill
Great movie with incredible 80s music. Jennifer Garner & Mark Ruffalo are perfect in this movie (:
Dead Angel
Loved the ending!
Matt Goodman
Eh. Didn't do it for me.
Lucas Martins
Just another dramatic romantic comedy, that it's a box office hit, without any reason.
Bethany Murphy
Really funny and feel good film! A must see! The thriller scene is amazingly hilarious.
