I love how Arci always brings a little bit of her colorful personality into every role she plays. This was the only hit single on the album, reaching 29 on the.

It was realistic, not instantaneous and in-your-face. After their break-up, the two former lovers seem to have a hard time coping with the loss. One minute she is this very innocent, childlike, and charming woman; the next, she is a very mature and goal-oriented individual. The one who gave the most is still the one who lost the most. This song is about a couple who really like each other, but their relationship just can't last any more even though he still wants to be friends with her.
Arci and Gerald had not chemistry what so ever. The movie never bothered to show us the progression of his character arc. There are a lot of things you will relate to and learn from while watching the movie. They act and react like real people in the middle of uncertain love, with both of them swimming in an ocean of insecurities, doubts, envies, jealousies, and mismatched longings.

. Also, I gotta give credit where credit is due. The lyrics describe a relationship to which Rundgren and the woman to whom he is singing have given great effort to fix the relationship, but simply cannot work. It is a welcome sight to watch a romance movie that is not set before the relationship. This is one of the songs Rundgren's fans often cite as one they have a personal connection with.

It gorgeously meanders, focusing not on railroading the rom-com formula towards its predictable conclusion but on the moments that endear its audience to its characters and their fragile affairs.
The plot starts toward the end of Digs' and Sam's relationship so we don't see a lot of how they started and what contributed to the breakup. Lastly and a bit nitpicky, there was a scene in the movie that has an obvious continuity error. They have an interesting kind of chemistry. Not only was the plot ridiculously boring, the whole movie was boring. This movie deserves a second watch.
It was also interesting how some scenes were repeated at the end of the movie to show how the relationship changed and how the characters have developed.

I liked the transition used in the middle of the movie that showed how much time had passed. While the imagination that is required for them to be successful in their respective fields sometimes makes its way into their banter, it never really enriches their romance in a way that could have been slightly more profound.
It really feels like they have been partners for 8 years. This movie seriously has issues.

This is a love story and I did not --once-- feel the love between them. The acting was horrendous to say the least. The film shows how hard it is to truly move on if you remain close friends right after a breakup. At the end of the day, they got together in very predictable fashion. She started to nitpick the things that annoyed her about Digs—his always-chill attitude, and the fact that he didn't have a permanent job.
