Enjoyable movie, Helen Hunt makes it look so easy.

Rated 6/10. This turned out better than I thought it might. Nice twist at the end. Helen Hunt did a good job in her role.

Besides the terrible, sinful clothes, it was a great movie, one of Scarlett Johansson best. Recommended.

Lots of droll one-liners, fashionable hats, Tom Wilkinson smiling broadly at the end. Helen Hunt seems to be intoning the same sentence over & over, no matter what's going on or what she's saying. But you feel like you're on vacation, & that's nice, a very cool period piece. For the subject matter I think they could have shown a little more sweat & ruffles (this is an Oscar Wilde picture that's rated PG?), because by the end you don't really understand what's transpired between people exactly, & all the emotional turmoil & subsequent reveals don't make any sense. But that's not a reason not to watch it...! You like Italy, don't you? Watch it. CR

Witty dialogue, good cast, minimalist acting - pretty good movie.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. The mood is very 1930's and quite authentic. The Amalfi coast is a good place to retreat for the season; gossips; parties; romantic entanglements; and an unknown seductress added to the mix. Great performances. I especially liked Helen Hunt's role.

A light-hearted romantic comedy involving a lady of pleasure, wealthy men of various ages, a playboy, and a young , American woman in love in the time period of 1930. Some of the dialogues are fairly well written, and humorous. The happy ending is totally expected but still provides a decent closing. The cast and location of shoot, in Italy, are pretty good too.
