Synopsis


Serendipity
After the long-delayed Town and Country, director Peter Chelsom turns in his second 2001 effort with this love-at-first-sight romantic comedy that revolves around fate, destiny, and chance. Jonathan (John Cusack) and Sara (Kate Beckinsale) are two New Yorkers already in relationships when they meet one another, each reaching for the last pair of cashmere gloves at a department store. Over coffee, they strike up an intimate conversation, and Jonathan thinks they should see each other again. Unconvinced, Sara arranges an elaborate series of "fate" games; if they're meant to be together, she reasons, she and Jonathan will receive some sort of sign in the future. Flash forward several years, and the two are at opposite ends of the country -- Jonathan in New York and Sara in San Francisco, both engaged to be married. Still, neither can shake the memory of their chance encounter, and they both enlist their best friends (Molly Shannon and Jeremy Piven) to help them find their true love again. Serendipity had its Gala World Premiere at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

    LOVE THIS MOVIE

    I had seen this movie a network channel with commericals and knew I loved it. However, being on a network channel I knew they chop parts out so I was lucky enough to see it on either HBO or Showtime, without commericals. I loved it so much I knew I had to buy it and I'm so happy I did. I watch it all the time and I should order another copy to have on stand by so when I wear the one out I do have I will have a replacement.

    If you're a fan of John Kusack or Kate Beckinsale or both...definitely a "must-have" movie. That said, this is a movie that caught me off guard. I thought that I would see it as a Rom-Com that would fall into a demographic that I don't necessarily fall into. I was happily surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie.

    This is one of my favorite boy meets girl and the drama of finally getting the girl. I still can't explain why this movie appeals to me so much. I much have watched this over a dozen times and still not get tired of it. Both actors played their parts well. My kids loved this show that they got their own copies also.

    Not a great transfer

    The movie is fine and full of great moments, but this Bluray transfer is pretty poor - many scenes that do not look at all in HD, etc. If you already have the DVD there is little reason to upgrade unless you can get it cheap.

    I enjoyed watching this movie because it reminded me of the nature of love. You must be willing to give love in order to receive love. My parents always told me that.

    This is a favorite chick-flick movie from years past. John and Kate give great performances for a cleverly written Rom-Com. This won't disappoint.
