    I haven’t seen this one, we have HBO and CineMax but I rarely watch either, and I’m not usually a chick flick girl, however, this movie and Eat Pray Love have both been recommended to me. So, I may watch it. How hard am I going to cry?

      That’s a good question. I think it will depend on the day and your mood when you start watching it. I cried frequently during the movie…but not as much as when I watched My Life with Michael Keaton. THAT movie actually made me sob. But for this one, I’d say a fair amount. You’ll definitely want tissues handy. 🙂

    I really like this film but Gerard Butler’s Irish accent is one of the worst I’ve ever heard. I went to see this in the cinema and when he first opened his mouth there was an audible gasp from the audience, all of us Irish and sounding nothing like him. In the end we just had to laugh at him and close our ears every time he spoke 🙂

      I guess I haven’t heard enough Irish accents to know a good one from a bad one. Well, except for Colin Farrell, and usually half of what he says is bleeped out on talk shows. 🙂

    Kristy, this movie has got to be one of my favs! I could watch it over and over again. And it was hilarious too. And well written. I’m so glad you got to see it. I wish I had a copy. Great find! 🙂

      If you have any Blockbuster videos in your area, Karen, you might check to see if any are closing. Although I just checked. I could have gotten it for $6.50 (+ shipping)…NEW, instead of the $10.00 + tax for a used copy at BB. It’s worth it though. VERY good movie. 🙂

    I loved this film and wasn’t put off by his bad imitation of an Irish accent since I’m not that familiar. LOL But I’d like to be! Okay, moving along. You should allow yourself to watch more movies from time to time Kristy. You never know where that spark of inspiration will come from. Not to mention the quality time with family and friends. 🙂

      Maybe his Scottish accent was waring with the Irish…either way, I’d like to be familiar with it, too! 🙂

      Surprisingly enough, this is going to be a record few days for me, Debra. I watched P.S. I Love You last night, rented Charlie St. Cloud (not sure when I’m going to work that in but I am), and will be going to see The Vow on Sunday since our little theater FINALLY got it in.

      I know you’re right about making time to watch more. I just have trouble sitting still for 90-120 minutes and not doing anything else. Even when I watch TV programs I tend to get up during commercials and pace or march in place. LOL…sometimes even during the show. Being too still drives me nuts! 🙂

      You’re welcome, Louise. And, while I don’t know what sort of movies you prefer, if you like quirky romance movies at all, you should really like this one. 🙂

    Such a sweet film, Kristy. So glad you enjoyed it, with or without those tissues. 😉

      It was, wasn’t it. And I wish I’d enjoyed it with Kleenex instead of Kleenix. Pretty sad when a 14 year old points that error out to you. But it will teach me to actually pay more attention to the packaging on products I buy. 🙂
