    The movie was god awful, but it was clear that it was the makers, ie the script and the director. If this had been a full on comedy, and was adapted into something a little more real, like drugs, it would have been awesome. Sarah is a great actress, but this movie sucked. Its always down to direction and writing. The way I see it, if the farrelly brothers had written and directed the movie, it would have been really funny (they did me myself and irene). But the entire movie ended up a confused rom-com-drama disaster, and the leading man could have been swapped out for someone funnier. shame…

    Only those who love this movie are allowed to post here.

    If you dislike the movie, go watch Napoleon Dynamite and shutup.

    No one cares if you dislike it.

    If you hate it, you obviously have too much time on your hands to come on a forum talking about how you HATE a movie.

    I love this movie!

    I love how everything she felt went into the food, so awesome!

    There’s just something so….magical about this movie that makes it one of my favorites!

    He is one (if not the only) of the few critics who had a heart for this movie. I figure it was very bold of him to recommend this sweet film. And a bit odd seeing is he didn’t like Serendipity (which I thought was a better movie). Though for some strange reason he also recommended Little Black Book so you just never know.

    Not sure if this has been a topic yet. But I would like to know where the Martini "Rube Goldberg" Mousetrap can be found. In the movie, it’s in the Southern Cross behind the bar. Aunt Stella uses it a few times. I have googled, and ebay’d to no avail. PLEASE HELP.

    The plot is bad, the script is awful, the acting is shameful and the dialogue is horrendous. I love this movie. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine. Everytime I watch it, I hate myself for putting up with such crap, but I can’t help it. Sometimes you just need pure fluff.

    Since I haven’t seen this in any messages, I have to wonder why no one even noticed this was a re-run of Alladin with a mischievous genie that never let himself be known ?

    All the magic came from the crab.

    I actually missed the point where Sarah decided a crab out of water was better than crab on a plate.

    Exactly what made her decide to not cook that crab ? There was a commercial at some point while she was grocery shopping. And I assume the decision came immediately after the commercial.

    Talk about bad timing for a commercial..

    Anyone who doesn’t like this film is incapable of just enjoying themselves. This film is a perfect example of a simple rom-com that one can just put on and watch and enjoy!! Sure it wasn’t going to win any Oscars or Academy Awards but it is still a great film because of how simple it is. And thankfully, it avoids those clichéd problems between the couple that plague other rom-coms. This film is great guilty pleasure and can be watched again and again without getting boring. So all you haters I beg of you, switch off your brains and your pathetic attempts at trying to recreate a Siskel & Ebert review and just enjoy a film for what it is.

    Played by Gabriel Macht. I’m a new fan of his, I noticed on his credits he played Charlie in Simply Irresistible. Now I’ve seen this many times but not in a long time, I can’t remember who Charlie is ?? Can anyone describe the scenes he was in?

    Thanks :)

    I’ve seen this movie about a thousand times and I just don’t know why I like it soooo much. I mean, I leave this movie on loop on my tv for crying out loud. What is the appeal?!

    Maybe it’s the look and feel of the movie. I just think everything in this movie fits perfectly together. The warm colors used in the movie (browns, golds,) just set the tone so nicely. Amanda’s wardrobes were beautiful, a lot of light pinks. Even at the department store, all the suits and scenery were so crisp and lively. The music is always soft and soothing, never abrupt. A lot of wind instruments and guitars, vocals are soft whether male or female. I dunno. That just HAS to be it!!!

    I think she has such poise in this.. She’s so powerful she makes this whole movie magic. IMO, she gives away one of the best performances of her career in a very very underrated movie. I think any other actress couldve made this movie fall so flat, but she did an incredible job. I also think it is one of the most intensly romantic movies ever made. I think it’s a shame so many people think it sucks. Mehh. Any opinions?

    Just watched this movie for the first time about a week ago. Its corny but very hilarious! And the guy from the shoe department is one of my favorite characters! He is great and reminds me so much of a guy who would work at Saks. I thought all the actors did a great job and were all funny in their performances.

    The movie weaves the same spell as the food served in it.

    I had no idea what to expect from the movie, and it was nothing I could have expected.

    This the best movie SMG has made in my opinion. The script is so funny, and the actors were so convincing. They do a great job reminding you of what its like to have such a natural feeling of ecstasy, joy and contentment. Whether its a tasty desert or a special moment shared. Its clear they wanted to make a movie that was simply irresistible.

    This is a movie you have to be in the mood to watch, or you wont feel the magic.

    And without the magic it will leave you asking "What the ….?"

    Hi! I was watching the movie again in the small hours of this morning and in one scene towards the end, I’m fairly sure I saw the ‘magical’ crab in a top hat and tuxedo. Did anyone else notice this or am I slowly going mad?

    :-P

    When SMG changes into that pinkish dress at the end to dance with her guy. I think that is the best she has ever looked on film. Anyone agree or disagree? Post your opinons please.

    Does ANYONE know where the wardrobe people got all of her amazing clothes in this movie?? Her jackets alone throughout the entire movie were incredible, not to mention the pink floral dress that she wears to shop for plates (and of course that pink dress at the end in the restaurant) … Whomever the wardrobe people were on this movie did a FANTASTIC job!

    i rented this movie years ago and fell in love with it but then i forgot about it until one of my friends mentioned it going to be on tv tonight. is there anywhere in Australia where i can get the dvd? i would tape it but i don’t have a vcr, just an xbox to play dvds on. i really like this movie and i could only find dvds of it with region 1 encoding. to see it here it’d have to be region 4
