Oliver and Emily, a pair of dynamic, diametrically opposed twenty-somethings whose initial fateful meeting sets off sparks…then seems to go nowhere. Over the next seven years, they will continue to meet. But is their relationship simply a good friendship? Is it destined to be yet another romantic disaster?
Romantic Comedy - It's your basic romantic comedy. It has a fair amount of humor and
some good romance scenes. Guys, I would NOT call "A Lot Like Love"
a "chick flick." I believe it's the type of story that will appeal
to a wide audience.
PROFANITY: 2 S-words, just a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex sounds and sexual activity. Some nudity. VIOLENCE: None DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Quite a bit of drinking hard liquor and smoking. ACTION: None COMEDY: Quite a bit of humor. Approximately 14 chuckles and 17 smiles.
The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good A Lot Like Love has enough sincerity that it's not easily dismissed as just another attempt to plunder a lucrative market. And, by not going too far overboard into drama, it avoids becoming cloying and artificial. I like the movie and the way the story progresses.
Roger EbertFull Review Poor To call "A Lot like Love" dead in the water is an insult to water.
USA TodayFull Review Good Which makes this better-than-expected date movie the first comedy in which 'thesis' and 'Ashton Kutcher' can be used in the same sentence.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 76 moviegoer opinions. These are some very good opinions. About three-quarters of all groups rated "A Lot Like Love" "Very Good" or higher, which is great. Most of the remaining opinions were "Good" or "Fair," which is getting low but they still indicated it was, at least, somewhat enjoyable. With such good opinions and no really low opinions I can certainly recommend "A Lot Like Love" to everyone!
It all begins as a young man and woman
meet on a cross-country flight. Oliver
(Kutcher) is a brand new college graduate
with an airtight timeline for attaining his
dreams of both business success and finding
true love. Emily (Peet) is a bold, free spirit
drawn to spontaneity and wild extremes. Two
different choices, two incompatible views on
life. They may have hooked up for a brief
moment, but Oliver and Emily clearly don't
belong together. Or do they?
Though they both move on, Oliver and
Emily nevertheless can't quite seem to
completely let go. As the two bump into each
other, year after year, in city after city,
through changing careers and different
relationships, there always seems to be plenty
keeping them apart. And yet, there's also something utterly inexplicable pulling them together.
There's something about the way they laugh together, the way they can talk to each other, the
way they always seem to be there for one another when things are falling apart. So what keeps
getting in the way of what could be romantic destiny?
