"Pretty pre-school teacher Sarah Nolan (Diane Lane) is divorced, demoralized and dateless - until her sister posts her profile at perfectmatch.com. Now she has lots of dates. With weirdos, weepers, lechers, jocks - and Jake (John Cusack), a soulful boat builder whose idea of true love comes straight out of Doctor Zhivago. Jake is attractive, smart and maybe a bit too intense. So Sarah passes him by. And maybe passes up her one real chance for love. With a witty script and irresistible stars (including Christopher Plummer as Sarah's widowed dad, weaving his own worldwide web of romance, and Stockard Channing as his new lady friend), this romantic comedy is as delightful a surprise as a perfect blind date. Don't miss out: love could be just a mouse click away!"--Container.

A lot of romantic comedies fall flat on their face when it comes to the actual humor, but this film shells out a bunch of laugh-out-loud moments time and time again. Talented actress Diane Lane is perfectly cast as the protagonist, a freshly divorced teacher who feels rightly overwhelmed by the painful and contradictory world of dating. She's got great chemistry with co-star John Cusack. This is exactly the sort of movie that's funny enough in a light-hearted way for even those that disparage so-called 'chick flicks' to enjoy.

Witty, poetic, sophisticated, a perfect romantic comedy for me.

An OK Romcom if you can suspend your disbelief that Diane Lane
has trouble getting dates.

I love Diane Lane and I like most of John Cusack's films too, but this was a disaster. She's a preschool teacher in her late forties whose husband cheated and then dumped her. He's super picky and verbally abusive. They had zero chemistry. He shows up for their blind date and insults her looks. So of course she isn't going to go out with him. But she does something worse--she jumps into bed with the father of one of her students. And he's a serial cheater. It was really awful. Sadly, the first 90 mins of this film is a pretty accurate picture of the abysmal dating world. Which made the happy ending completely unbelievable.

A waste of talent as far as the cast the script was inane , forced and juvenile. The Director should give their money back.

The "will-they-or-won't-they" scenarios are teased out to an almost maddening degree, but it's sweet and funny.
