Reason to watch this movie :

1. KATE BECKINSALE vs JOHN CUSACK
Well.. like always, Kate is very lovely, and at that time John seemed to be labeled as romantic comedy specialist (Serendipity – American Sweethearts – High Fideliy within 1 year).

2. DESTINY
Serendipity is a nice word that represents all about this movie.
Fate made them met each other.
Fate also made them separated (a kid in devil suit? nice! hehehe).
So after years, when they both are about to step into their marriage, the memory of this fate haunted them.

Do you believe love is destiny?
Well… will you risk your love by letting fate guide you to find person to spend your life with? Find out their amazing journey to answer that question.
Too many coincidence? Well, this is a movie, isn’t it? Just enjoy the magical moments.
Like when Jon opened the wedding present from his fiancee (wow)

3. GOOD SCRIPT
Especially from Dean Kansky, Jon’s friend. His ‘obituary’ is very well written and touching.

“Johnathan Trager, prominent television producer for ESPN, died last night from complications of losing his soul mate and his fiancee. He was 35 years old. Soft-spoken and obsessive, Trager never looked the part of a hopeless romantic. But, in the final days of his life, he revealed an unknown side of his psyche. This hidden quasi-Jungian persona surfaced during the Agatha Christie-like pursuit of his long reputed soul mate, a woman whom he only spent a few precious hours with. Sadly, the protracted search ended late Saturday night in complete and utter failure. Yet even in certain defeat, the courageous Trager secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather, its a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan. Asked about the loss of his dear friend, Dean Kansky, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and executive editor of the New York Times, described Jonathan as a changed man in the last days of his life. “Things were clearer for him,” Kansky noted. Ultimately Johnathan concluded that if we are to live life in harmony with the universe, we must all possess a powerful faith in what the ancients used to call “fatum”, what we currently refer to as destiny.”

Great script huh?

4. ALL OTHER MOVIE ELEMENTS
I’m not movie critic, but for me, the supporting casts are great. Dean (Piven) salesman (Levy) are very funny.
The songs and scores really fit the scene.
