A couple of weeks ago Becky and I decided to go see the new movie Letters to Juliet. The Fandango website at Letters to Juliet describes the movie as follows:
“When a young American (Amanda Seyfried) travels to the city of Verona, home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of Romeo and Juliet fame, she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice about love. After answering one letter dated from 1957, she inspires its author (Vanessa Redgrave) to travel to Italy in search of her long-lost love, which sets off a chain of events that will bring a love into both their lives unlike anything they have ever imagined…”
Letters to Juliet was a very well done romantic film about a young woman who goes to Verona with her future husband and soon discovers that he is more in love with his business than her. While on her trip, she meets a guy that she has nothing in common with and it makes for an entertaining film.
The movie is very predictable and most romantic comedies are pretty simplistic, but the actors are fun to watch and Amanda Seyfried plays her part very well. The story will keep your interest and it’s definitely a chick flick, but it’s pretty fun and enjoyable. It’s cute.
There is one thing that I spotted as The Cool Car Guy that was actually pretty funny. When she goes back to Verona she rents an Audi convertible, which was quite funny since you rarely will see an Audi in the rental car fleet. Audi no doubt was a sponsor and I couldn’t help picking on that part of the film.
It will make for a good rental, but we both thought it was worth the price of admission. It would be a great first date movie for sure.
