This is one of those movies that while completely predictable and very unlikely to happen, is still unique and captivating in it's own way.
It's a wonderful love story about Jonathan and Sara, two people who meet by chance trying to buy the same pair of Cashmere gloves in Bloomingdales just before Christmas. Both are in a relationship with different people yet, on this one chance meeting and spending a day together, are quite taken with each other.
Although Jonathan wants to continue seeing Sara, Sara - as a firm believer in fate - thinks they should let it be fates decision whether they should end up together, and so, Sara writes her name and number in a book which she will give to charity, and Jonathan writes his name and number on a five dollar bill which Sara uses at a Kiosk to buy something. Her logic is that if they should happen upon each others names and numbers in future, it's obvious they should be together again.
Some years pass after they depart from each other - both have moved on and are now engaged to other people, and yet, they still have thoughts about each other. Jonathan has been endlessly searching for the book with Sara's number, and as he's soon to be wed, he decides to take one last stab at finding her before it's too late. Sara is also soon to marry, and decides to take off to New York in order to find him.
Throughout their search for each other, a huge number of coincidences weave in and out of their lives linking them unknowingly to the other, physically being blocks away and unaware the other is searching, and seredipity is working to bring them together.
A wonderful romance with some great comic moments from Molly Shannon, Eugene Levy and Jeremy Piven, and some brilliantly delivered scenes from John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. You won't be sorry you bought this.
