Trivia

Actress Birdie M. Hale, who was more than 90 years old during production of "A Lot Like Love" (2005), played the role of an old woman with a singular line ("Would you like to sit next to your girlfriend?") on a New York subway train early in the film. She had a very similar role as an elderly passenger on a New York subway train - also encouraging the two protagonists to get together - at the end of Coming to America (1988). See more »

Light romantic comedy, but...
2 May 2005 | by MelJJ123See all my reviews

Gosh darn it, I liked it. Did I think it was a cinematic masterpiece - definitely not, but who really expected that anyway? What we have here is a cutesy formulaic light romantic comedy. I laughed and walked out with a smile. Will I remember it in a year, probably not, but thats OK. I'd also like to comment on a post I read here, where the writer was 'distressed' by the characters in this film displaying VERY antiquated and unhip desires - like, dare I say it... wanting to secure a successful career, find love, and get married by age 30. Wow, can you imagine people nowadays feeling that way?! I personally find it 'distressing' to think that we live in a society where having traditional desires is made to be odd. I'm in my 20s and know many other people who are looking for these same things. So go figure, I actually found this perspective in a modern film refreshing.
