Goofs

Just before the end, when they talk next to the giant Cupid's bow, the large group of people that came to see the guy stop the wedding vanish as he walks in front of them. Followed by the comment from The Narrator "even my imagination took a kick to the balls", showing that the group of people were not real but part of his imagination. See more »

Ordinary, sweet & simple
8 March 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a rather ordinary romantic comedy, but it does have some great ideas, i.e. his smoking self that judges him in his endeavors, that is a very good character, really like the voice inside your head advising you to do or not do what you are about to.

It is in short a romantic comedy about an author experiencing real love for the "first" time, so his life is a romantic comedy and at the same time he is writing a manuscript for a romantic comedy.

It is very ordinary, sweet and simple with very few surprises, but it is okay entertainment and have a lot of good scenes where he as "the writer" puts himself into all the stories told by his friends etc.
