Plot Outline:

After losing nearly $1 billion for a shoe company, Drew Baylor is on the verge of suicide when his sister calls to tell him their father has died. Catching a red-eye flight to Kentucky, he meets a perky flight attendant before facing the huge family gathering for his father's memorial in Elizabethtown. -- Chris Kavan

I love this film! I love the way it's written and can't believe so many people hate on it! I'm a huge fan of Orlando Bloom which probably helps, but I love the plot and the adorable relationship between Drew and Claire. "DID I MISS 60-B?!" (;

This mumblecore-esque bollocks from yuppie-sympathiser Cameron Crowe indulges in philosophical complacency and romantic contrivance with a preposterous arrogance. Any doubts that I had about Crowe being a megalomaniac with delusions of being the love-child of John Hughes and Ingmar-bloody-Bergman are now firmly in the past!

There's nothing as masterful as "Almost Famous" and "Jerry Maguire" in this film, but it's still a sweet romantic comedy with well-structured characters and some clever and quirky moments.

Quirky, unconventional dramedy about lonely, likable protagonists finding solace with each other during some depressing times; director Cameron Crowe seems to deeply understand his characters, even though at times, he seems not to care about them. Final Grade: B

Cameron Crowe was sitting around one day and said what could be the worst possible story with the worst possible actors, with the worst possible accents. I want to make this film! I want to torture my audience! Sorry CC, but your efforts aren't appreciated.

Not in the league of Almost Famous, I still found myself liking this romantic comedy/drama from Crowe. The acting is adequate, the themes are heavy and redundant but the soundtrack is perfect. It's far too sweet, but still enjoyable.
