    I just loved this movie! :) It was sweet, fresh and funny...:) And it was great to see that Colin Firth can actually be so amusing...:)

    I put this on early morning as it was the only thing on the dial I hadn't yet seen. Having been born and raised in NH and having spent a lot of time in Vermont I know what a New Englander sounds like and Mary Steenburgen didn't sound like one us. Steenburgen sounded more like New York than New Englander which was a poor choice of accent for a Vermonter. Real Vermonters know that history tells of Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys drover the "yorkers" from Vermont. Heather Graham sounded like a woman from the midwest, oh, waith, she is. At least Colin Firth had the right accent. Ok, so there's more to a film than accents, but if you set a film in a place and you don't take care to get the sound right, you're probably not going to care to get other things right.

    A good cast. Not a good movie. Vapid and utterly without lasting impact. Hard to believe this was written by the same writer who wrote "The Graduate."

    Cute little romcom, but the main selling point is Colin Firth (sigh).

    Not a bad movie but not brilliant either. You can save it for a rainy day.

    Going to the cinema having read the critic's reviews first, is very 'hit & miss'. I really enjoyed this film - then I'm looking back 20 years ( wait until you get to where I am now).
