A golden oldie and one of my all time favourite romantic comedies, though this one runs a bit deeper than your average sugar coated predictable versions we see on screen these days. The entire cast is superb and I feel that whoever was behind the selection process did an outstanding job. Cameron Diaz is just so perfect for the role of perky, preppy Kimmy. She's so obnoxiously cute it's infectious. I also loved Rupert Everett as the gay friend who provides moral support and (at times) comedic insight.
The reason I like this film so much is because it varies from the standard format of a romantic comedy. Other than some fine acting there is also a lot of music and singing and in that aspect this movie resembles very much Love actually.
This is my absolute favourite scene, where Julianne realizes for the first time that she might actually not win Michael back. There is a beautiful imagery and symbolism as the tour boat goes under the bridge into darkness and as it reemerges into the light so does our heroine come to understand that her moment passed her by. The sunlight symbolizing knowledge and clarity.
