I saw this movie after being on a 20+ hour long haul flight!--I was totally jet lagged and couldn't sleep so watched it on Netflix (thank the heavens for Netflix!). I did find the storyline a bit weak and less than convincing but for the incredible good looks of Hugh Jackman and some very cute scenes, I kind of enjoyed this movie. The good thing is that it's light and funny and can make you laugh without being heavy duty. Hugh Jackman plays the very handsome Duke Leopold of Albany who travels forward in time to meet his soulmate Kate (Meg Ryan), a successful entrepreneur who lives in New York. Duke Leopold is simply adorable when he prepares breakfast for Kate and tucks her to bed...and writes the best apology letter to her ever written in the history of mankind! He makes up for the direction and the storyline which I think lacked character. But still it's fun to watch especially when you are jet lagged and the mind can't absorb much anyway!
