For all those people contemplating life, love, and "The One", this film raises all the questions you thought you should never ask. This candid portrayal of love and lust is funny, sad and poignant in all the right places. Sandra Bullock is stunning as the wild woman every man wants to run off with and Ben Affleck reciprocates as the man that every woman would dearly love to settle down with. Large dollops of comedy sit slickly with tear jerking sadness, all of which is interspersed with heart warming romance. If you don't see it, you'll never know just what you might be missing (in life too).

if your looking for one of those films that has all the award winng stuff,like explosions and fights then don't watch this, but if you want a funny, sometimes light hearted, sometimes heavy, with a realistic ending, then you should watch this.
Both characters have something to learn from each other and as with most films, something to show the audience. As a film many viewers will see it a the last temptation of the groom, which it is. but it is also funny, without taking it too far as so many films do.

This was my first experience of a brilliant writer, Marc Lawrence, who creates a refreshing, bright and original story in a genre where possibilities are fairly limited. Lawrence's real skill is in the short, every-day scenes (people waiting in a queue, or riding in a taxi) where he puts surprisingly original words into the mouths of what appear to be ordinary people ( as Woody Allen does) thereby revealing some quirky and very humorous feature about that character. Lawrence also has a knack of allowing characters to speak our own inner-most thoughts as if they were everyday truths. But there is no doubt that the brilliant writing is given three dimensioal life by the acting of Ben Affleck, who can handle the various demands of his craft better than anyone. He has always excelled at the awkward, difficult moments, when he is clearly searching for the right words, and yet his joy and child-like enthusiam in moments of excitment are catching. I also liked the pace and mood of this film, as it (literally) journey's onto its (emotional) destination, Lawrence builds up the mystery yet allows us to empathize with the charactars as they face upto doubt and temptation before marriage. The final scenes somehow exist in a a dreamy, unreal atmostphere,with the battering storm reminding us of the Forces of Nature that affect every one of us in our own lives. Best film I have seen for a long time. Recommend it.

Being a Sandra Bullock fan, I was looking forward to watching this dvd, but was very disappointed. It started off funny, but degenerated into farsical, over the top nonsense. Also, I was not impressed by some of the content (gay bar, lust issues) which I felt trivialised the subject matter. Whilst this dealt with what is no doubt an interesting subject, I felt the film was directed towards men, and the passion of the ending of the film was not matched by the silliness of the middle, and the humour of the beginning. I was waiting for it to end, as it did, fairly predictably. Wish I hadn't wasted my money.

I am a big fan of Sandra but this film is not one of her best.Its one of the earlier ones so she had not yet matured into the actress (or actor) she is today.

I think we gave it away to a charity shop!

Big fan of Sandra Bullock and this movie was just as much fun as her other films. I do love the banter in this movie.

This is a film with a lot of action, fun, and for one like me, working for people with psychic problems for decades, shows a remarkable insight. Sandra Bullock is as fantastic as ever and acts this women with a severe personality disorder in a very authentic and understanding way, you can't help but loving her. Adam Sandler is great in the other part of a steady man, who hasn't full experience of himself at all. Accidentally pinned together (they have to deal with a lot of problems) both learn about themselves and their capabilities, find something new in exchange and in the end you see that life doesn't goes the easy way and is nevertheless precious every moment. And as long as you live you can always make things up, or at least try.
