I really was apprehensive about this movie because critics gave it such a bad name. This film IS DIFFERENT and that makes it great. It is not a typical love story. I really loved this movie because it had many interesting character quirks. Not to mention it gives you the 'road trip' travel bug. Orlando Bloom does a wonderful job of acting and I was SO happy to see him in a role that wasn't big blockbuster epic where he doesn't speak much. After watching this movie and others...I have come to the conclusion that critics hate the movies I love. If it's too different that makes a movie bad? No way! See this movie. you either love it or hate it. I love it!
I absolutely love this movie! It certainly is a bit quirky, but my spirits were lifted seeing it! My husband really liked it as well. Good for both guys and girls. And the scene with Alec Baldwin is really funny! The soundtrack for the movie is amazing too. If you're looking for something light, funny - a feel good movie - give this one a watch.
