nnom35 ...kinda like Cristin Milioti herself. I swear, this girl can do anything...this is probably the least I've liked her in a movie, and it was still pretty good. I gave the 8 to offset the haters. She's the lead and fairly unlikeable...plays a weak and weak willed person. After a while, you want to tell her what to do with her life because it doesn't seem like she'll ever get there. I paid 4 bucks to rent it, and I consider it money well spent. Enough said?
devi_jets Just watched this movie. To be honest i wasn't expecting that much. Offcourse when i saw the poster for this movie i thought.. maybe a movie about a couple who are struggling with their relationship and stuff. But this movie totally surprised me. It was cute, romantic and edgy. Not the typical standard romantic cheesy one! Glad to see a woman in a film who isn't the typical stereotype kinda woman. Sonia is messy, doesn't know if she is ready for marriage and doesn't dress up like a lady lady. She is just herself, which i love. Also the friend group in this movie is healthy, real and they are sweet. Also the music in this film was very nice. I say a must-see
MartinHafer "It Had to Be You" is a decent romantic comedy. However, despite my having a reservation about the plot (which I'll get to in a moment), I don't want to miss mentioning something really important about this film. The director and co-writer of the film, Sasha Gordon, is a successful composer for movies but has very, very limited experience in directing and writing. In fact, it's the first full- length film she's ever made...and I really think it's important to remember this. After all, with experience, I can only see her films getting better and better and this is an amazing film for someone with her limited experience.The plot is what bothered me a bit about the picture...and it might be worse because I am a trained psychotherapist. The couple in the film probably never should have been together and the nice ending, to me, made the counselor in me want to jump up and yell "Don't marry her!!!". Let me explain more about this...When the film begins, Sonia stumbles upon her boyfriend preparing for an incredibly romantic evening where he's going to ask her to marry him. Instead of staying, she sneaks out of the apartment and phones her friend to tell her how horrified and confused she feels...as she doesn't want to get married. Unfortunately, when she turns around, Chris (Dan Soder), happens to be standing there...hearing how his beloved isn't thrilled about marriage or his elegant attempt to propose to her. Naturally he's heartbroken but they soon patch things up when she convinces him that she just needs more time. Unfortunately, months later she still is ambivalent about marriage. She does love Chris in her own way...but Sonia seems to love her independence more. Chris, on the other hand, sees the writing on the wall and is ready to leave and find someone willing to commit herself to him completely. After all, he's 32 and wants to marry, settle down and have a family.So here is my problem with the film. Although I loved the characters, the direction as well as most of the writing, it's a hard sell to base an entire romance movie on a main character as unromantic and commitment-phobic as Sonia. Plus, they both have the right to want what they want...but never should have stayed together. In real life, a marriage with folks like this would likely be doomed and is anything but romantic. It naturally makes the movie a bit of a hard-sell as a romance. Folks will enjoy the quirky dialog, situations and characters....but many might be put off because when a film features someone (man or woman) who doesn't want to get married, it just doesn't exactly sound like someone you'd want to see in a romance! So, in some ways the romance isn't very romantic..at least for more traditional and old fashioned romantics like me. But it does some lovely moments and a few laughs. Plus, the film still works reasonably well and when I learned that Gordon was new to writing and directing, I felt amazed! Not a perfect film but a worthwhile film nevertheless...and hopefully the first of many more feature films from her.
vandewatercapital Wonderfully current and edgy romantic comedy starring the wonderful Cristin Milioti, Kyle Mooney and Hutchi Hancock.Sonia is a neurotic jingle writer who's always dreamt of a big and exciting life.
