Movie Info

A woman throws caution to the wind in the pursuit of the man of her dreams -- whom she's never met -- in this romantic comedy. Eleven-year-old Faith (Tammy Minoff) and her cousin Kate (Jessica Hertel) are playing with a Ouiji Board when Faith asks who she will marry -- the magic oracle answers "DAMON BRADLEY," and Faith is convinced that she will one day meet this ideal love. Fifteen years later, Faith (Marisa Tomei) has yet to meet her perfect man and has settled for Dwayne (John Benjamin Hickey), a sweet but boring foot doctor whom she's engaged to marry, with Kate (Bonnie Hunt) helping her plan the festivities. The day before the ceremony, Faith gets a call from one of the groom's friends, who won't be able to attend because he's travelling to Italy instead -- and his name is Damon Bradley. Convinced that fate is trying to tell her something, Faith hops on the next flight to Venice, where she searches for the elusive Damon, and along the way meets the charming Peter Wright (Robert Downey, Jr.). This was Tomei and Downey's second romantic pairing, following their roles in the biopic Chaplin.

Critic Reviews for Only You

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (16)

  • "Only You" plays more like a pleasant travelogue than an involving film.

    Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Movies like Only You and its obvious model, Sleepless in Seattle, are less true romances than they are collections of romantic signifiers.

    Sep 7, 2011 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Jewison knows exactly where the laugh and welling-up buttons are that will hook the audience into this middle-class fairy-tale-come-true, and has smartly cast it with engaging personalities.

  • Even so, the ravishing visuals, some swooning love songs, and the strains of Verdi should see you through to the predictably moist ending.

  • Mr. Jewison takes a voluptuously cornball approach to this story. And the story itself, by Diane Drake, is actually rather sweet.

  • Only You isn't much more than target marketing for the Sleepless in Seattle crowd.

    Over-the-top ridiculous yet LOL funny. Some romantic parts as well.

    Robert Downey Jr shows his passionate side in this romantic comedy about a young woman, Faith Corvatch (Marisa Tomei), who believes that the love of her life is a man she's never met and she travels to Italy in pursuit of this man she thinks is her destiny.

    A sweet movie about a woman called Faith who through a Ouija board discover the name of the man she's going to marry. She goes for a long time without finding this man and sets to marry another one instead. When she discovers that her dream man is located in Italy she immediately goes there to find him.
