Take away the ethnic/pregnancy angles, and we've seen this premise countless times -- all the way back to the spate of post-World War II romances about returning veterans and the mates they married in a blink.

Audience Reviews for Fools Rush In

"You will never know love unless you surrender to it". My main reason for renting this movie was because I started to watch Friends and Matthew Perry was hilarious in it so I decided to get this, and you know what I was ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY not dissapointed. You know it was still the same type of movie Matthew Perry would do but at the same time this movie was funny but a touching love story. Matthew Perry will forever be my fave, and he always will be! :) Salma Hayek is a good actress herself too.
