17 April 2013 | unomeyetudont
| A very enjoyable movie
It is another good movie from Italian director Gabriele Muccino who gave great English-language movies like " The Pursuit of Happiness " and "Seven Pounds " in addition to some great Italian movies..

Gerard Butler is always handsome In this movie he has done some good acting too.. as a failed man, a good soccer ex-player and coach and news-caster, a husband who is still in love with his ex-wife, a charming man found irresistible by ladies, who are equally irresistible ( Catherine Zeta_Jones and Uma Thurman )--and above all a loving, caring ,trying father..

I have always found Jessica Beil attractive.. she has played the emotional role very effectively..

I feel both Gerard Butler and Jessica Beil are underrated, as is the movie.. Ignore the rating for 100 min and enjoy the romantic movie, which has interesting turns and twists ..

You will love it..
