The film draws comparisons to movie staples such as My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Meet The Parents about clashing cultures and unexpected love. This movie seemed good for the first 5 minutes or so, but before I watched it 20 minutes, his continued attempts at humor annoyed me to the point I came to write a review.
Her biggest challenge, however, is denying the fortune from her trusted psychic, who insists Jack is not the man for her.

Their acting is very good and natural, as is the whole cast, especially best friend Wilson played by Vik Sahay. I wondered why she hung around to be insulted, then I remembered that some writer dictated all that.
Still, Scott and Sousa's on-screen chemistry help to ground the story and keep the viewer invested and though predictable, Scott's pathos throughout is genuinely heartwarming, especially whenever he takes a break from being the lovable goof.

Scott , a struggling sitcom writer and Maria Jeannette Sousa , a superstitious and traditional Portuguese girl, who fall in love after an accidental meeting at a diner. The plot - it's a romantic comedy, so a tiny bit formulaic as plots go - keeps your interest. The writing stays cute and admittedly one-note throughout, peppering in little double entendres and character quirks here and there, though some of the jokes fall flat whenever the film's humor overly relies on contrived situations rather than on the strength of the actors alone.
All in all, a very nice and simple movie. All four tracks two by , two by sound like they could be on the band's classic early albums. The main characters also have amazing chemistry. Maria, struggling to hold back her tears after breaking up with her fiancé, initially turns down his request. Funny, witty, crazy, and then more funny!

I loved this movie and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys watching romantic comedies. If this is the way people in love act with each other I can't understand why they would want to be married. And has to deal with her fortune teller.
And has to deal with her family. I enjoyed this very sweetly romantic and entertaining film about a guy who meets and falls in love with a Portuguese girl. The film has already pre-sold more than a thousand tickets! I didn't even watch the last 25 minutes because they probably got married anyway which makes no sense to me. The new songs are surprise! Scott, Jeannette Sousa, Joaquim de Almeida Our Brand is Crisis , Vik Sahay Chuck , Aris Athanasopoulos, and special guests Grammy award-winning recording artist Nelly Furtado and George Stroumboulopoulos.

Featuring the voice of , one of rock's greatest singers, the thoroughly excellent Original Bad Company Anthology re-establishes as a force in the music world. The characters were interesting, attractive, and funny. .
