Her comfortable, shallow existence begins to change the moment she and Pete do a story of Prophet Jack, a soothsayer who spouts unusually accurate predictions to passers-by in exchange for spare change. He predicts that Lanie will not get her cushy promotion, in fact, he says she'll die within a week. When Jack's other prophecies start coming true, Lanie starts living each day as if it were last.

Just a little bit of fluffy romance. Standard fare. Tony Shalhoub is brilliant, as usual. I thought Angelina Jolie and Edward Burns were an odd choice but they fit the roles. Always great to see Stockard Channing. Nothing special about this film so I give it a 6 (fair) out of 10. It kept reminding me of UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL (which is a perfect 10 in my books) so I felt like they missed out on being a better film, but maybe I'm too hard on this genre. [RomCom Drama]

This falls into the category of "cute" movies. As such it is really good. Good enough to watch twice before I returned it. And it does a great job of showcasing Seattle as well, just like Ten Things I Hate About You did. So, make some popcorn and watch what your neighbors are up to!
