Just flat out corny and sappy. It's a romantic comedy with a kicker, one of them is dying and it's not the one you want to die. Keanu Reeves was… More

Nice movie which appears to be a standard rom com, but turns sad by the end. Keanu is a little wooden, but Charlize is such a free spirit here it balances out.… More

I saw this for the second time today. I even moved my rating up 1/2 star. Ok, the movie is somewhat preposterous. Nelson (the hunky Keanu Reeves) with his A… More
