First off I must say that I'm a big Alec Baldwin and Meg Ryan fan. So when I discovered "Prelude to a Kiss" by accident at the rental store, I knew I had to check it out! Two of some of my favorite actors/actresses in one movie, in a romance movie no less! Well... all I can say is that I'm glad I only rented this movie instead of buying it.
Peter Hoskins (Alec Baldwin) cannot pinpoint his attraction to Rita Boyle (Meg Ryan). She has a pessimistic view on life and she has many strange quirks, including never being able to sleep. And yet the two inevitably fall in love and it seems that Peter has found the perfect happiness when Rita agrees to marry him. Yet on their wedding day, a mysterious Old Man (Sydney Walker) comes to the wedding reception and wishing to kiss the bride, Rita allows him to. An innocent kiss, but it wasn't in the slightest. On their honeymoon, Peter cannot get rid of the feeling that Rita is NOT the Rita he knew. Outwardly she is the same, but Peter knows she really isn't. What has happened?
"Prelude to a Kiss" is for one thing, NOT a romantic/comedy. It is a romance/drama/fantasy since it deals with many supernatural elements. Oh, and another thing, the story isn't really about the 'prelude' of 'a' kiss, it is the prelude AND aftermath of 'the' kiss.
My biggest problem with the story is that it really doesn't seem to flow very well. The pace is slow, from the very beginning where you feel that it might pick up. Unfortunately though, the end is rather luke-warm and just doesn't have the power I expected it to have. Another problem is the sexual content. In my opinion, true love can be better expressed by the main characters NOT having sex.

Well, this one is a charmer. Silly plot on the surface, but touches on some deep issues regarding love, and the nature of it. Alec Baldwin is superb as the lovesick, then profoundly heartbroken newlywed. The moment when he realizes, truly, that Rita....isn't Rita, and says "I'm on to you"....will make you cry. I'm an Alec Baldwin fan, I admit, but he is so breathtakingly, stunningly, mindbogglingly beautiful to look at in this film he's almost hard to watch....it's almost painful. Cripes, does he have the most beautiful face on the planet, or what...and that astonishingly thick, cowlicky head of hair....and....and...um..I digress. See it ladies, it will make you ache in the most pleasant way...its a keeper.

Baldwin and Ryan are at their most appealing in this heartfelt romantic gem. It's a profound, surprising story about embracing life, and it's one of the best-written movies in the genre I've ever seen. It was especially great that when the movie was in theaters, no critic gave away the plot device that turns the movie on its head at the end of the first act, so it was a beautiful surprise when it happened.

Yes, this is a fantasy, but in a world where a movie about hobbits can be nominated for best picture, I am willing to suspend my disbelief a tad bit for this beautiful fable about the true connection of soul mates. Meg Ryan is young, thin, and yummy to the eyes, but young and yummy Alec Baldwin can tell when she's not herself. And he knows the difference between the wrapping and the gift.

Peter Hoskins (Alec Baldwin) and Rita Boyle (Meg Ryan) meet at a party, and it is practically love at first sight. After a whirlwind courtship. they decide to get married. At their wedding, an old man (Sydney Walker) wanders in and kisses the bride. Suddenly, Rita's body is occupied by the spirit of the old man, while Rita's spirit is consigned to the body of the old man.
On their honeymoon Peter senses that something is not quite right about Rita. It is inexplicable to him that he could have been so mistaken about her. Gone is the Rita with whom he fell in love, his soul mate replaced by a virtual stranger housed in Rita's body. It is from this premise that an allegory on love flows beautifully throughout this film and serves as an insightful commentary on the nature of true love.
When Peter finally is able to figure out what has happened, he contrives to find away a way for Rita to come back to him as she was. You see, he does not love the "new" Rita. As lovely as she is, she is not the Rita with whom he fell in love. It is now the old man with whom he has an affinity. It is the old man whose company he now enjoys.
What happens and why certainly gives the viewer food for thought as to the nature of true love. Very well acted by Alec Baldwin, Meg Ryan, and Sydney Walker, this is a utterly charming and touching romantic fantasy. The strong supporting cast of Patty Duke, Ned Beatty, Stanley Tucci, and Kathy Bates serve to round out this excellent and entertaining film.

Okay, okay, I'll give it to everyone that there's a plot twist within this movie that's "a little hard to swallow" but as far as romantic comedies go, you can't go wrong here. Alec Baldwin and Meg Ryan play their roles perfectly and it's nice to see people that are more human than the typically "perfect" people we've gotten used to in the movies. Add to that some great writing and you'll not only enjoy this film as a romantic comedy...it may just stick with you afterwards as the onion layers peel away and the meaningful depths become a way for you to relate to your own life. See if you don't learn something more about the meaning of that complex four-letter-word "love". Enjoy.
