Imagine Me and You


Imagine Me and You (2005) The Beatles sang:

“Do you believe in a love at first sight?”
“Yes I’m certain that it happens all the time.”

This movie is about love at first sight. Does it happen, or is it wishful thinking? Well, it’s never happened to me, but it happens to a woman in this film who is, literally walking down the aisle to get married, glimpses a person and instantly falls madly in love. Trouble is, this person is another woman. No indication is given that she has ever had a homosexual thought; it simply happens, a thunderbolt from the blue. The other woman is, luckily or unluckily, depending on your point of view, a lesbian. The new bride still has a high regard for her husband, who is decent and still loves her. But as Woody Allen said when marrying his stepdaughter, “The heart has its own ways.” Or something like that.

This is a premise for an interesting movie, but this movie isn’t it. Everybody’s too pretty. There aren’t enough witty lines, and what there are don’t come off. Every scene seems clichéd. All I really concluded from this film is that British yuppie scum are just as boring as American yuppie scum.
