    Maybe unfair, but I'm comparing the movie against the novel and WOW does it come up lacking. Shallow plot line, no character depth or development, so sugar coated. I understand you can't fit a novel into a movie but it would've been nice if they incorporated at least SOME of it in there. It's like 2 different stories were written from the same prompt, rather than a film adaptation of the novel. Gag.

    Pretty sure I watched this one but can't remember much of it.

    The concept of the plot is one I wouldn't take seriously considering the love dynamic between Daniel & Natasha takes the span of 2 days, it's a very intriguing one filled with good, cheerful spots and dramatic moments that add tension into the story. Me being a realist, it's certainly a cheesy romance flick that is best suited for movies and would never work in real life but the plot is done relatively well that It's an easy recommendation to hopeless romantics wanting to believe the dream.

    The concept is really good! It feels very rushed and disorganised though.

    This really was a great movie, never mind that its story-line might have seemed implausible.

    Something just felt very off when watching the movie. I am not sure whether it is the horrible execution of the plot or the lack of enthusiasm from the actors who are supposed to be "in love". Overall, the movie felt subpar compared to any other romantic movie about destiny and fate.

    After enjoying the book, I had high hopes for this movie. It wasn't necessarily bad, but certainly not great. The actors look way older than their characters, and it just seemed unrealistic and a little slow and unsatisfying. I definitely recommend the book much more than the movie!

    The book was beautifully written, with overall stunning execution. However, the movie adaption missed the mark. Many of the details that made the novel amazing were left out of the film and this brought down the movie's quality.

    This movie is very cute. I liked the storyline. It was funny and adventurous and is perfect for any date night.

    The true stars of this immersive romance include - Autumn Durald's gorgeous shots of New York City, sewn together by editor Joe Landauer, Herdís Stefánsdóttir‘s indulgent score, and diverse leads... It left me convinced the couple's sparks were, forged by fate in the space of time that the sun rose and fell upon the Statue Of Liberty (the story's ironic ideals of immigration revolve around).
