About the Movie

Ben (Ben Affleck) has two days to get from New York to Savannah, Georgia for his wedding to Bridget Cahill (Maura Tierney). Everything is running smoothly until his plane skids off the runway. Ben inadvertently saves the life of his seatmate, Sarah (Sandra Bullock), who becomes his companion for the longest two days of his life. As fate begins to repeat itself through a series of disasters involving a rental car, a train, and a bus (not to mention a hurricane), Ben has to wonder if someone's trying to give him a message. Inevitably, he also finds himself falling in love with Sarah. Meanwhile, Bridget wonders where, exactly, Ben is, and her old boyfriend Steve (David Strickland) attempts to take advantage of the situation. Not that Bridget's dad (Ronny Cox) really minds, since Steve is much more successful than Ben. En route, Ben and Sarah collide with Ben's best man, Alan (Steve Zahn) and his girlfriend, the maid of honor (Meredith Scott Lynn), which further adds to the series of cosmic tests that Ben must try to answer.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The film shows off Ms. Bullock to amusing if overly frenetic advantage. It also leaves Mr. Affleck without enough of a Cary Grant aura to play his wimpier character with style. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jun 14, 2009

Rotten: The cinematic equivalent of Styrofoam: a weightless romantic comedy of synthetic feelings. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jun 14, 2009

Fresh: An extremely enjoyable neo-screwball comedy about attractive opposites on the road. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A most pleasant and diverting venture. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jun 14, 2009

Can't rent it :(

Doesn't it make sense to rent it before you buy it? I haven't seen this movie. The previews make this movie look great but how would I know, and I'm forking over ten dollars sorry itunes but you can do better :(

Unhappy, iTunes

Like the other guy said, this movie looked really good with great actors and I really really wanted to RENT it, but thanks to you, iTunes, I cannot. You want me to waste ten bucks on a movie that I haven't even seen...ugh no thank you. Please make this movie rentable. Thank you.
