I saw the movie this film was remade from, the Audrey Hepburn movie Paris When it Sizzles and let me tell you that film was light years more charming than this one. In fact, I think this movie went straight to DVD or got a very limited release because I don't remember it ever being in cinemas. Do you?
With a little bit of editing this can be a fun film. (however, without editing, I can't recommend it.) It is actually a remake of an Audrey Hepburn movie called "Paris When It Sizzles." Although in my mind, the story-line in the fictitious world is easier to follow in this film (Alex & Emma) because it makes sense! Something one can't really say about the other film. They are both enjoyable though. *spoiler* I like it when Alex is musing about the importance of a book's opening sentence...so true..although I'm with Emma with book endings...haha. Great movie to watch to get the writer grey cells working.
Yet another movie that my girlfriend wanted to watch with me. I'd never heard of it before this and I kinda wish that I had. I like the romantic comedy genre and thought that this was an excellent film. The jokes at an author's expense were also well crafted.
Rob should've just remade Paris when it Sizzles instead of blatantly plagurizing it and ruining some of the fantasy that made it great. this picture is still decent but I would imagine it's better if you know nothing about the original.
