Storyline

Michael and Jenna, having been a couple for three years, want to get married and start a family. These plans seem to be well on their way when Jenna announces that she's pregnant. But Michael is worried that his life and his youth will be over for good. At a wedding of a friend, he meets a free-spirited college co-ed, Kim, who opens his eyes and leads him on a dangerous path away from Jenna. Meanwhile, none of the relationships of the people surrounding Michael and Jenna are happy and stable. Michael's friend Izzy is unwilling to let go of his childhood sweetheart Arianna; Kenny is a handsome stud who fears commitment to his latest conquest Danielle; and Chris is a co-worker who is dominated by his neurotic and overbearing wife over raising their newborn son. Even Jenna's parents, Stephen and Anna, are experiencing problems in their long-suffering marriage. Written by EdFlesch

OK, OK, but it's a remake!!
12 January 2007 | by Finey_McFineSee all my reviews

I browsed through twenty-something user comments just to be sure, but not one of them seems to mention, that this film is actually a remake of the 2001 Italian film L'ultimo bacio. And although I can't say, that the American version is bad, but it is somewhat disappointing after seeing the original, which is far superior in every aspects.

First of all, I don't deny, that Paul Haggis is an excellent script-writer, but he shouldn't be given credit for this one, for the plot line is pretty much the same (there are some differences, but they're, I think, for the worse - for example the college girl character is actually an 18-years-old high school student in the Italian version, and has somewhat different characteristics).

Also, the acting of the Hollywood version ranges from OK to quite good, but the Italian cast simply blew me away - incredible performances all over.

All in all, I don't want to diminish this film, I won't give it a bad rating, but I just can't think of an argument why this version should be preferred over the original, so if you have a choice, do yourself a favor and see L'ultimo bacio instead.
