About the Movie
Sonia is a quirky, neurotic jingle writer who has always dreamt of a big and exciting life. Surprised by a sudden proposal and subsequent ultimatum from her easy-going boyfriend, Chris, Sonia has three days to decide whether she'll join the ranks of her married friends or take a leap and pursue her fantasies. Blinded by anxiety, and pulled towards a fantastical idea of becoming the kind of woman she always idealized in films and literature, Sonia decides she isn't ready to get married. Instead she will go on a solo trip to Rome and finally shed her inhibitions. However, reality quickly catches up to her as her journey proves a lot bumpier than the idyllic “Eat Pray Love” she’d envisioned. A whimsical romantic comedy that's raunchy and yet gentle, "It Had To Be You" explores the choices women face today while satirizing cultural expectations of gender and romance.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Cristin Milioti is so quirkily endearing in the lead role that she makes it easy to just go with the airy tale.
Fresh: A memorable romantic comedy that stands to bring back the genre's good name, "It Had to Be You" is as funny, endearing and enjoyably off-kilter as its adorable star, Cristin Milioti.
Rotten: The film takes a few jumps in time and employs some mildly experimental techniques. Unfortunately, most of the humor doesn't stick.
This is one of the sweetest yet realistic romance films in a LONG time, and good enough that after watching it as a 99 cent rental, I BOUGHT it. This is what I think of (but can't find) when I think of romance movies. Also happens to show Cristin Milioti at her best. They chose the wrong title for the movie though- because of the familiarity of the wording, you are likely to feel you watched (or passed) on the movie before, when in reality you haven't even heard of it, as was my case. HIGHLY recommend, I wish there were more movies like this to choose from.
Fabulously funny and refreshing
I love a good romantic comedy and this is up there with the best. I laughed so much! I saw it when it came out in theaters and can't wait to purchase it for my collection. Also, definitely a must-see for those girls who came of age in the 90s. It's wonderful.
