This was a pretty generic rom-com that played with the notion that you can be looking in all the wrong places for love. Mel spent so much time chasing after Diana before he realized that his true love was right in front of his face. It was interesting to see his character shift from the "playboy" who thought he would only have one night stands, to someone who has to confront their own intimacy issues to finally see what is in front of them. I enjoyed the use of Daphne and Casanova as an allegory for the love building between Mel and Ginger, showing that true love can come in an unexpected form.
