Two opposites have a one-flight stand from la to new york. When the trip's over, they are too - and both move on but really can't let go. As they search for love, they keep finding each other. And while the chemistry that first brought them together keeps generating heat, the timing is always wrong.

"An entertainment success, a triple threat of fresh writing, inspired directing, and, yes, good acting.  Melissa Levine, Dallas Observer
"...has ambition, heart and something to say other than love conquers all.  Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Peet is triumphant as the beguiling object of desire...  Scott Foundas, LA Weekly

Editor's Note
From British director Nigel Cole, whose sweet-hearted comedies CALENDAR GIRLS and SAVING GRACE shared a similar combination of humor and true emotion, A LOT LIKE LOVE is the story of two friends who seem destined to love each other--if they can ever realize that themselves. Meeting on a flight from Los Angeles to New York, naive Oliver (Ashton Kutcher) and tough Emily (Amanda Peet) have sex in an airplane lavatory before learning each other's names. Despite this intimate introduction, Emily is uninterested in getting to know the guy she just picked up, telling Oliver frankly that he's not her type. The two part ways, but end up running into each other hours later in what proves to be just the first of many semi-coincidental romantic encounters. After spending a fun day together in the city, Oliver gives Emily his home number and tells her to call him in 6 years, once he's gotten his life and career figured out. When an unforeseen breakup leaves Emily dateless for New Year's Eve a few years later, she calls Oliver and they meet again. In the years that have passed since their first meeting, Emily has taken up acting, Oliver has started an online diaper-selling business, and both have gotten more flattering haircuts. But Emily is disappointed to learn that Oliver is moving to San Francisco for business the next day. Over the course of a few years, Emily and Oliver grow to depend on each other in times of crisis, and develop a solid friendship. While each sporadic encounter contains an undeniable spark, the timing never seems to be right, with several bad relationships, career transitions, and location changes getting in the way. But will the pair realize their feelings for each other and get together before it's too late?

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"[Kutcher] has enough natural charm to hold the screen without effort..." 04/22/2005 p.E12

Los Angeles Times
"[T]he dialogue is refreshingly natural. Kutcher is surprisingly well cast...and Peet is charming and charismatic without being cloying or artificial. Together they drum up some believable, low-key chemistry and an easy, funny rapport that is pleasant..." 04/22/2005 p.E6

USA Today
"Amanda Peet's vitality is the movie's driving force..." 04/22/2005 p.4E

Sight and Sound
"[Peet] brings a down-to-earth vulnerability to her role..." 08/01/2005 p.58

James Berardinelli's ReelViews 7 of 10
Here's a pleasant little romantic comedy that doesn't try too hard and has the virtue of doing a few things differently. Not that it breaks new ground, but there is a little more substance to the story than boy-meets-girl/boy-loses-girl/boy-gets-girl-back. A Lot Like Love features B-list stars Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet, and, while the chemistry between these two doesn't set the celluloid on fire, there are enough fitful sparks to get us rooting for them to end up together, which is the key foundation to the success of any romance. - James Berardinelli

Rolling Stone 6 of 10
Even if you profess a deep like for Amanda Peet (I do) and Ashton Kutcher (the jury's still out), seven years of them is a bit much. That's what you get packed into two hours of A Lot Like Love, which is a lot like a lot of other romantic comedies that make two lovers of friends (When Harry Met Sally, Serendipity) and a lot not like the two witty and wise Richard Linklater movies -- Before Sunrise and Before Sunset -- that span the relationship between Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy for nearly a decade and leave you wanting more. - Peter Travers

Chicago Sun-Times 5 of 10
"A Lot Like Love" is a romance between two of the dimmer bulbs of their generation. Judging by their dialogue, Oliver and Emily have never read a book or a newspaper, seen a movie, watched TV, had an idea, carried on an interesting conversation or ever thought much about anything. The movie thinks they are cute and funny, which is embarrassing, like your uncle who won't stop with the golf jokes. This is not the fault of the stars, Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet, who are actors forced to walk around in Stupid Suits. - Roger Ebert
