Sure, the movie was predictable and sure it lacked real chemistry between the characters but it managed to keep me interested somehow. Maybe it was the witty humor or the naive young guys playing college students making complete fools out of themselves or maybe, just maybe, it is Julia Roberts' ability to capture an audience full of movie-goers and have her smile resonate through the dark theater. It's that likability factor that leaves the audience satisfied after watching a not-so-special romantic comedy that has eighty different main characters with troublesome lives. Tom Hanks has become dry and not as charming on screen as he once was but with Julia's big, bright smile the failures of the film quickly disappear and has the viewers loving the story. Through this unclear review, one thing is clear: In the end, it's all about French toast. 2 and a half out of 4 stars.
