IMDb Plot Synopsis: On a flight from Los Angeles to New York, Oliver and Emily make a connection, only to decide that they are poorly suited to be together. Over the next seven years, however, they are reunited time and time again, they go from being acquaintances to close friends to ... lovers?

My Review: Almost a modern When Harry Met Sally, A Lot Like Love is an amazingly sweet film that while nonsensically unrealistic feels very genuine and was effortlessly moving. And so while there were far too many coincidences for it to be believable, every scene was played honestly and, wow, for all the schtick Ashton Kutcher gets he is surprisingly good! And Amanda Peet, too, was a sort of undiscovered talent for me as I’d never seen her work before but the two have a beautiful chemistry which means you don’t doubt their feelings towards one another in the slightest. Spanning seven years and the actors are aged very well: the film makes you think about who is in your life at the moment and who will still be there in seven years! 
Overall a brilliant feel-good film which leaves you with a satisfyingly warm feeling...
Score: 8/10
