This was pretty average....
Such a chick flick, which is not my scene at all....I only got it as I wanted to see what Franco Nero looked like these days......a bit over sweetened (no, a lot), and highly predictable. Disappointing
2 stars is all I can manage. Most rom coms are a bit predictable, but this one was only just watchable.
Erk! Estroegen overdose! Alright, Vanessa Redgrave is okay, but she doesn't have to do much. I've read the other reviews, and if you have to rely on the scenery to get you through this, then get a Lonely Planet guide to Italy instead. What does Amanda Seyfried's character even see in Chris Egan's arrogant, pompus English (I think that's what he was trying to do) charmer? Predictable as hell - of course the correct older Italian gent has to arrive on horseback - and sappy. I needed to look at a power tools catalogue after this.
Loved this more than I thought I would. Nice feel good girlie movie,
This is just my type of movie! :)
Not a bad movie for an easy watch, but the ending is badly scripted
Excellent movie would highly recommend
The predictability of American films makes this another boring one too.
Loved this movie as it was a great '?hick-flick'. Lots of sentimentality and great scenery of Verona, which brought back memories. Vanessa Redgrave was just brilliant, and the supporting cast was believable
I am not a fan of romance, i did however love this film...its what i consider to be a nice film..feel good i surpose it what others call it. I have already recommended it to friends
Found this a bit overacted although liked the story. A romance for the girls and not one that my husband would have enjoyed. Predictable story line and ending but ok for a rainy day when there is only sport on tv !!
This was a fantastic movie, I watched it three times.
pleasant enough but far too predictable but then again it is an american ''chic flic''
if it had been made by italians it would have been a far better watch
Pretty rubbish, teenage girls might enjoy it or oldies for the scenery. Shame Amanda is such a blank actress, she just doesn't have much in the way of facial expressions!!!
I didn't expect much from this movie and I was pleasantly surprised. It was a lovely story, beautifully acted, and superb scenery. I recommend it highly.
the family loved the movie, great feel good movie
Very pleasant lovely romp with some funny bits
Excruciating. Only interesting to see Vanessa Redgrave, although she seems mildly embarrassed to be in it.
a great chick flick truly enjoyed this movie. makes me want to go to italy
beautiful, sad and worth the watch
A little cheesy in parts but a sweet story with beautiful scenery and great actors. Well worth watching.
A delightful gentle story. A great change from the so many violent DVDs
I loved it I can't believe since it's been out I haven't seen it but now I've seen it I'm going out and buying it :)
Well done a very pleasant two hours and although predictable the characters kept the story alive for me.
Yeah, it's a chick flick but it does have a good storyline and is well acted. Well worth a look.
I really enjoyed this movie it was a heart warming tale of how 2 people that are meant to be together will always find their way back to each other..
2+ from the wife 2 stars from me and we love Rom/Coms. Cannot believe so many positive reviews. We thought this movie was very very corny (especially the balcony scene) and not a touch on the wonderful NOTEBOOK. There was very limited chemistry between the main actors. Chris EGAN's acting was appalling, and his attempt at an English accent made you cringe. Vanessa Redgrave tried hard but due to her age I think, paused over her lines to much which detracted from her performance. What saved the movie was the wonderful Italian scenery, overall an ordinary night entertainment and not recommended.
Really nice feel good movie with a feel good ending. Nice chic flick for a quiet weekend.
Love and romance watchers would fall in love with this one! Although you could tell from the start what would happen at the end. However, I still love a good sop story.... It's on my list to buy now!!
Seriously! It was really slow paced and obviously predictable.
THere was so much potential for the movie but they made it very cliche.
Plus that main guy actor looked american but had a really bad british accent.
I found this movie very boring and there was no chemistry between the lead actors.
just bueatiful, worth watching again
It was good and predictable
I loved this movie but the rest of the family thought that it was too much of a chick flick
loved this movie, what a beautiful story
sweet and romantic.. not a bad movie to curl up and watch....
THE WORST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN!! I usually like romances or romantic comedies but this was truly dreadful. It was so unbelievable and unlikable. The cliches were stupid. Even the Director says in the comentary that the audience at the Preview screening laughed long and loud at a ridiculous scene so they added one line.......l.it didn't help.
Dont waste your time.
Really sweet movie. Always nice to curl up and watch a good girly movie like this one. Beautiful scenary and lovable characters.
This movie is definitely not for the sloppy movie haters..this is a lovely, heartwarming movie full of romance.
Very Girly movie, just a lovely nice movie to watch
A little slow at the beginning.. but I really enjoyed it, a feel good movie about life loss and love
Fairly predictable but enjoyable and light hearted non the less
A beautiful romantic story loved it very much
Loved this movie,great story line, wonderful scenery,all actors were a credit to their roles. Loved it.
beautiful film loved it soooo much
Really loved this movie because it showed us a lot of Italy.
Not the best acting but nonetheless it was a cute, easy to watch romantic flick with breathtaking scenery.
It is very watchable, even if it lack the real spark. Beautiful sets in Italy do help a lot.
Not my kind of movie at all. Ended up doing other things while I watched it. Found it weak and a little boring.
Lovely plot with a few holes in it but a good movie all the same
A feel good, totally predictable chick flick filmed against a beautiful background. Loved it.
Nice love story, I don't normally watch movies like this but it was good. Not your typical romance which I liked.
Such an enjoyable movie. One the whole family could enjoy without any vulgar language or sleezy sex scenes. Thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you.
Lovely movie. A story I wanted to be a part of. Beautiful views, loveable characters, great acting and more
I don't normally do chick flicks (give me Star Trek, Jason Bourne any day) but unexpectedly loved this. The scenery is stunning- get me on the next plane to Italy. Get past the improbability of the storyline and you'll enjoy it. My 10year old daughter really liked it too (she likes Amanda from the Mama Mia movie). A lovely change from many of the violent, fast paced and foul-mouthed movies out there.
Loved this movie very romantic and beautiful scenery.
I liked this one, it was a feel good romantic movie about love lost.
A fun, clever movie with a few laughs and a few "oh"s. Worth the time to see it.
A nice movie with a good performance by lead actress Amanda Seyfried. The movie had an interesting plot, although the storyline was fairly predictable. The male character, played by Chris Egan was unlikeable and there was definately no chemistry between the 2 young lead actors. The setting of the movie was a nice surprise.
I really enjoyed this. The true love conquers all cliche never fails. Loved all the characters and I'll never hear the words 'win-win' again without thinking of this movie!!
Can somone strangle Amanda with a wet towel? That annoying voice goes for 90 bleeding minutes......aaaaaaaah. Can I give half a star?, that's for location.
Highly enjoyable romantic chick flick...even a few surprisingly touching moments.
Just lovely. A wonderful, gorgeous movies. Very highly recommended.
Delightful. For anyone who has visited Italy or wishes to. The film has wonderful sweeps over Tuscan fields, down cobbled streets, very evocative scenery, snippets of Italian language and paced like a holiday's day of exploring. A predictable plot but very pleasant.
i was thrilled with this movie,,,,, a light hearted feel good movie that makes you think you will find true love no matter what and no matter what age you are
A sweet film with great scenery and storyline. A lesson for the tourisim board of any country. It was quite predicable but what chick flick isn't. I enjoyed it.
Good example of a feel-good movie. Nice to see the older generation included in the romance. Lovely locations in Italy. All round good clean stuff. Suit all ages. Well maybe not little kids because they would be a bit bored.
Lovely, romantic and sweet. Good rainy sunday afternoon flick Girls I recommend it.
What a gorgeous, romantic movie. I loved it! Only disappointing part, it should have been longer.
A charming little movie. But who is the punce who did a terrible job of impersonating Hugh Grant. If you watch the movie you will instantly know who I mean.
Nice chick flick. Good young actors, nice scenery. Kept me entertained right up until the ending where it became over the top and pathetic. Still worth a watch though.
What a great Chick Flick. We loved it
I can't remember the last time I was so embarrased for the director of a film......absolute rubbish! The acting from everyone was apalling with Amanda Seyfried looking embarrassed by just being in it. The actor who played the British prat was unlikeable, unskilled and loathsome. It had the potential to be such a wonderful film as the scenery was beautiful and it made me want to go back to Tuscany again......the talent was there, but I suggest a lack of direction was the problem.
Fun light romance set in beautiful Italian countryside.. The main romance with the young couple was a bit bland, but I really enjoyed Vanessa Redgrave's character and her search for her destiny. It's not a great classic but certainly an enjoyable night's viewing.
Awful! The lead, Amanda Seyfried, is okay but that awful blond man is just so unconvincing as a snooty English toff. The characters were wafer thin and there's no development, there's no indication of why she suddenly falls for the cranky Brit. Italy just does not look like that - it's a Disney cartoon version of Italy, there are no cobwebs, no dirt. I swear, the Italy in this film would smell like air freshener. And everyone, EVERYONE wears beige or greige or taupe. I only rented this because I like Gael Garcia Bernal but really, I'd have been better off watching Y Tu Mama Tambien again. This is a waste of his talents. (Okay, I have to admit I knew it would be before I watched it...)
Excellent film! Mega chick flick! I cried! Wonderful! Going to buy it! Happy ending!
It is a nice movie, that doesn't quite work. It could have been a wonderful emotional experience, but it isn't. There is no connection with the characters. It's entertaining but forgettable.
One of those movies that are predictable and cheesy but still enjoyable. Loved the location this was shot in.
Just brilliant. . . .I have really been looking forward to this movie as I'm becoming a great fan of Amanda Seyfried. This movie surpassed everything I had been expecting, so much more than the usual romance, unique storyline, wonderful acting by the main characters just love the Grandmother Claire, magnificent scenery in the Italian countryside, you can't go wrong in choosing this movie it ticks all the boxes for a great evenings viewing. . . in fact I will keep it another day and watch it again or even buy a copy to keep. Very highly recommended!
