This movie is like "pure truth".
This film just blows my mind. It is a great little movie, it really is, but more so it blows my mind because of how undeniably true to life some parts and dialog really are. David's voice-overs are so touching, and genuine to real human emotion, I just cannot believe it. Much of the reason I am in love with this movie now is because I am in love with a girl, and she is in love with me, but we have obstacles, much like the characters in this film. Indiretly, but underneath, this film has a GREAT message about love and finding it, and not just finding love, but making it work. David says in this movie, "there is no one true love, but just a LOT of potential true loves"... and until I watched this film(for the first time in about a year), I never ever agreed with that, I've always been old fashioned, and thought that there is a one true love for everyone, but it just isn't true, and watching this movie made me realize that, and I know the girl I am in love with right now isn't "THE ONE", but she is a potential "THE ONE", and I do think she will be my "THE ONE", especially after I watch this movie with her.

This movie really has a great message, and will make a GREAT, absolutely AWESOME date movie for any two young lovers, it gives you all the knowledge and feelings that you are going to feel when you falling love, and it tells you what to do with them. Trust me, I know, I have recently fallen head over heels in love with a young lady and I know watching this film has just given me all I need to make us work. This movie is amazingly made for the things it was made for, it was made to be romantic, which it truly, deeply, sincerely is, and it was made to be funny, which it also REALLY is, it's zany and over the top, but who cares? It's the message that is there under all the silliness.

Ryan Reynolds... can act... wow... Jerry o'Connell has never been better, everyone else is great. Walt Becker(director) has really made an amazing film, especially for someone who is currently dating, or talking about dating... think of this film as a guide to true love, and lots of laughs.

This is one of my new favorite films... it really will just make you feel good. It is a must see for anyone, especially for couples. Awesome date movie, and I'm gonna use it on a date, and it's gonna find me true love, and it'll find you true love too. If you think I'm exaggerating, I'm not, this is an amazing movie, don't pay any attention to the user rating, it's under-analyzed, and under-understood.

Buy it, watch it(with a date preferably), enjoy it. 10/10
