Critics Consensus

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

Audience Reviews for Imagine Me & You

    A charming romantic comedy, Imagine Me & You is quirky and lighthearted. The story follows a newlywed named Rachel who, after having a chance encounter at her wedding, begins to question what love is and whether she has married for the right reasons. The performances by Piper Perabo, Lena Headey, and Matthew Goode are exceptional, and the cast has impressive chemistry. Additionally, the humor is quite clever and the storytelling is well-done. Still, there are some underdeveloped plot elements and the directing is a bit weak. Yet even with its flaws, Imagine Me & You delivers a fun and entertaining tale that takes a sincere and heartfelt look at love.

    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, that 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 straight-up 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!

    Two women meet at one's wedding, and they fall almost instantly in love with one another. As the bride enters married life, they work to resist their attraction. This film hinges on love at first sight, and this concept, flimsy and difficult to show on film, is the only thing that can help avoid the audience thinking that Luce is a home-wrecker or that Rachel is a doubly sinful adulteress. And it would be even more cliche to depict Heck as the insensitive asshole husband. So, love at first sight it is, the only thing on which this film hangs its hat, and as a result, I'm left thinking that <i>Imagine Me and You</i> takes few chances. It fails to develop the relationship between Luce and Rachel so that we might think that lesbian relationships are superior to heterosexual relationships, and I would wonder how the charm of this romantic comedy would be affected if it depicted a male/male affair. However, for all its structural flaws, I found myself charmed by Piper Perabo and Lena Headley's performances, and Matthew Goode is the definition of "British dashing." The comedy is positive, upbeat, and innocent despite the relative illicitness of the central affair. I found myself enjoying the experience of watching this film until I started to think about it.
