Imagine Me & You (2006)



Critic Consensus: Aside from its lesbian theme, Imagine Me & You can only offer more of the same generic rom-com cliches.

You're walking down the aisle on your father's arm and your eyes meet the eyes of the person you know you're going to spend the rest of your life with. Then, imagine that that person isn't the nervous man standing next to the vicar. It isn't a man at all. It's the woman who's been employed to do the flowers in the church.

Critic Reviews for Imagine Me & You

All Critics (101) | Top Critics (30)

Imagine Me & You shamelessly embraces every romantic-comedy cliché in the book.

The American Perabo (doing a good English accent) and Headey are likable leads -- and Goode brings a touching vulnerability to his role as the luckless Heck.

If you're in the mood for a moonstruck trifle with a drizzly London setting, this might not be such a bad choice. All that's required is that you be as open-minded as the movie is open-hearted.

Although Imagine Me & You (never much liked that song) tries to tap into a popular theme, we never believe that Rachel and Luce are the slightest bit interested in one another.

Charming, quirky Brit romance has mild gay themes.

A generally pleasant distraction.

Audience Reviews for Imagine Me & You


Still a good movie rewatching years later, but got to admit a few things bother me about it now which never did when I first watched it.
I must have been a lot more romantic in my younger days, because this doesn't ring true at all. It's sweet, don't get me wrong, but not realistic. Would you really leave someone you just married not long ago for someone else (not even getting into the gender of that person)? A boyfriend perhaps, but a husband? You'd really want to be very sure that you were leaving him for something real and not just an infatuation. Things really hadn't gone far enough with the girls to be certain it wasn't just a crush/attraction worth leaving a marriage for. Especially when your husband is really nice and not a rat like you frequently see in this storyline.
That aside, nice rom com, likeable cast, even a child actress who isn't cloying. Oh, and Anthony Head - didn't even realise he was the dad in this!

Funny. Charming. Sad for him...even though they did attempt to make us not feel too bad for Matthew Goode by the end. Stick around post credits. All became right by him...

What a nice freakin' movie. Very sweet and British. I rather like Heck's "If you had any respect for me at all, that's exactly what you WILL do [leave him]" and Rachel's, "What do you mean?" after Heck claims this was all her choice. She doesn't say yes or no; she's conflicted as to whether love is a choice at all.

However, I can't help but think the audience wouldn't be as forgiving of this extramarital tryst if "the other woman" was a man. A wife falling in love at first sight with a man other than her husband...well, that's just her succumbing to lust. A wife falling in love at first sight with a woman...well, that's just her following her heart. In either scenario - if they're believed to be earnest - there is both succumbing to lust and following of hearts. The movie assumes a slight double standard of homosexual affairs being more forgivable than heterosexual affairs. Some would say navigating the spectrum of human sexuality is harder than navigating just one relationship. This sounds like reverse-discrimination - one diverse population holds the monopoly on suffering, so they should be able to get away with certain crimes. I'm not saying the movie champions this; I just wonder how much of my liking of the movie is based on this forgiveness, and how much of a PC hypocrite that would make me.

Lastly: such a very nice use of title song!
