The story begins with a woman who while in college had a huge crush at the campus' most popular guy. She furiously collected his gym photos and even got a few of him as a toddler! Creepy or what? The years passed and one day she reads in the paper (in the obiutuaries section) that the guy she was in love with will be buried in a few days. So far so good... but after causing an uproar at the funeral by her sobbing heart wrenching entrance, she realises the dead guy in the coffin is actually her dream guy's father... John Sr. and not John Jr.!
The widow is hilarious through the whole movie! This film has nothing to envy from any western romantic comedy. On the contrary, the script is funny without awkward pauses or cliché situations. This movie although it lasts more than most it flows and the dialogues keep your interest quite readily.
I hope for a western adaptation one day, which will keep this movie's freshness and humor.
What can I say if you find a DVD copy to rent (or even buy!) somewhere to think twice!
