I try to avoid romantic dramas with a touch of comedy as much as I can. But I knew from the start that I won’t be able to skip “A Lot Like Love“.

There are two good reasons for me to be interested in this movie – Amanda Peet and Ashton Kutcher. I really like both of them. Not just the acting, but rather that charm and energy that they have drives me towards their work. Well, and the acting as well. I knew that they would be excellent together in a film like this, and they were.
Everything else doesn’t matter – story, music, all that stuff is just unimportant. I’ve seen it all before and I will see it many times more. But the teamwork of Peet and Kutcher is a different story. They basically glued me to the screen. Yeah, I know that’s easy to do, but it doesn’t happen all that often.
Resume: if you are even a tiny bit centimental – watch the movie. It was very very good.
