Destiny. Faith (Marisa Tomei) believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other. From the Ouija board, she has found the name of her missing half, and it is D-A-M-O-N B-R-A-D-L-E-Y. Later, at the carnival, the fortune teller sees the name Damon Bradley in the Crystal Ball and Faith is convinced. She is told that "You make your own destiny,…don't wait for it to come to you", but she is looking for Damon. 14 years later, she is engaged to a dull podiatrist and plans to marry until she gets a call from one of his classmates who is on his way to Venice, Italy. The classmate is Damon Bradley. Rushing to the airport to see her soul-mate, she misses him and the plane, but decides, then and there, to go after him. So Faith and her sister-in-law Kate both board the next plane for Italy hoping to find her Damon.

Did You Know?
Bridget Fonda was the original choice for the female lead.
At the very end of the movie, the plane shown is an Airbus A300. On take-off, it becomes a Boeing 727 in silhouette.
Why couldn't we just have arranged marriages in America?
Yeah, at least you could spend the rest of your life blaming your parents instead of yourself.
A great way to spend a cold winter night
What a great romantic comedy set in beautiful Italy, not only are the
actors Robert Downey Jr (so handsome and such a talented actor) and the
beautiful Marissa Tomei amazing but watching these actors play out such
a romantic story and doing things that we would never dream of, to find
your one true love. All with her best friend by her side. Brings me
back to being 13, dreaming of who I would marry and the romantic
innocence of those times.
Its not only the romance but the friendships that give you that warm
feeling inside, both the men and women in this film have a quiet kind
ship with each other as when you see the three men sitting in the boat
sharing wine, feeling rejected by women. ( I won't spoil that scene
with anyones names) and the kindness of the hotel staff in later
These days so many movies and the reality of the news is full of war,
violence and betrayal. Why not put all of that behind you?.. So sit
back with your favorite snack, some hot chocolate & maybe your best
friend and escape into love, romance, zany impulsiveness and disappear
into…. Only You.
