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.
