Any couple who have ever considered starting a long-distance relationship, or are already in one, should see this film.

You’ll find all the questions raised by this kind of relationship popping into your head – and they’re mostly of the “what if” variety.

Erin (Barrymore) and Garrett (Long) fall in love and spend a fantastic six weeks together in New York.

After the honeymoon phase they can’t help but get serious. However they’re both aware she’ll soon return to San Francisco and the inevitable question must be answered: “What now?”

It’s a typical romantic comedy with lots of humour and tears and as always Barrymore provides the eye candy.

It won’t change your life but it’s fun to accompany recognisable characters on their eventful journey of love.

Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Find Love!
