Storyline

Destiny. Faith (Marisa Tomei) believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other. From the Ouija board, she has found the name of her missing half, and it is D-A-M-O-N B-R-A-D-L-E-Y. Later, at the carnival, the fortune teller sees the name Damon Bradley in the Crystal Ball and Faith is convinced. She is told that "You make your own destiny,...don't wait for it to come to you", but she is looking for Damon. 14 years later, she is engaged to a dull podiatrist and plans to marry until she gets a call from one of his classmates who is on his way to Venice, Italy. The classmate is Damon Bradley. Rushing to the airport to see her soul-mate, she misses him and the plane, but decides, then and there, to go after him. So Faith and her sister-in-law Kate both board the next plane for Italy hoping to find her Damon. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

I LOVE THIS FILM!!!
12 June 2003 | by popsicle820See all my reviews

I want to be in love! At least this film made me want to. Bonnie Hunt is such an underrated actress. She's beautiful and has perfect comedic timing. It was in this film that I became a fan of Robert Downey, Jr. He is such a great actor. I wish he'd get better, though. Talent like his should not be wasted on drugs. Marisa Tomei was really beautiful in this film. Fisher Stevens is outrageous. Big fan of his. I really love the way this film was acted. It's a great, funny screenplay. Almost as good as WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING. Italy really is beautiful. The place added a sense of magic into the film. Cinderella stories are just the best!
