"Only You" plays more like a pleasant travelogue than an involving film.
Movies like Only You and its obvious model, Sleepless in Seattle, are less true romances than they are collections of romantic signifiers.
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.
Moonstruck director Norman Jewison successfully mines the same territory with this delicious "Cinderella Italian-style" romantic comedy.
Hunt plays the Eve Arden role of Tomei's wisecracking pal to perfection, making her the single best reason to see the movie.
[D]espite the lovely Italian locales and a relatively appealing cast, the film is far too cloying for all but the most sentimental tastes.
If it seems implausible that a young woman on a teacher's salary would be able to sport designer clothes and stay in posh pensiones all over Italy, well, who is a reviewer to quibble with ``destino''?
Jewison's romantic comedy is a well-made fluff, a handsome trifle that's easily watched and just as easily forgettable; a pale effort compared to Jewison's Moon Struck, and Marisa Tomei is really not a romantic lead.
One of those movies that evaporates from memory the moment you leave the theater.
Going through some old DVDs and looking to cull the collection. This isn't one that will be going. Quite enjoyed it.
Faith is borderline psychotic, but Marisa Tomei plays her so nicely you can almost buy her over the top behaviour. I'm not sure the movie entirely works honestly, but it has a decent cast and the Italian scenery is beautiful. Nice chick flick. However, I can tell middle age is creeping in on me, because the scene at the end, all I could think was "what a jerk, with his feet up on the back of someone's seat!" Obnoxious is not hot. But Marisa was really the one who makes this movie work.
A love story written in the stars
Very good movie! Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. did an amazing job. The story was very easy to follow even though it has a very unrealistic theme. A very nice romantic comedy with a destiny ending.
Destiny. Faith (Marisa Tomei) believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other. From the Ouija board, she has found the name of her missing half, and it is D-A-M-O-N B-R-A-D-L-E-Y. Later, at the carnival, the fortune teller sees the name Damon Bradley in the Crystal Ball and Faith is convinced. She is told that "You make your own destiny,...don't wait for it to come to you", but she is looking for Damon. 14 years later, she is engaged to a dull podiatrist and plans to marry until she gets a call from one of his classmates who is on his way to Venice, Italy. The classmate is Damon Bradley. Rushing to the airport to see her soul-mate, she misses him and the plane, but decides, then and there, to go after him. So Faith and her sister-in-law Kate both board the next plane for Italy hoping to find her Damon.
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.
Cute and good.
