as told to Kerry Miller

Where and with whom did you see the movie?

I actually watched it by myself at Koko Marina 8 Theater.

Overall, what did you think?

I loved it. I wasn’t expecting too much, but I was won over.

What about the acting. Did anyone stand out?

I love Renee Zellweger. Her performance was great.

How was the romance between Renee Zellweger’s and Harry Connick Jr.‘s characters? Did they have good onscreen chemistry?

I thought it was really cute, really warm; it was OK. Actually, I love Renee Zellweger, but in this particular film, I thought she may have overdone it a little. But still a lovely story none the less.

What was one of your favorite scenes or characters?

I loved her (Zellweger’s character, Lucy Hill) secretary, Blanche. She’s so cute with her accent and her personality. On the surface, she seems clumsy, but she gets a lot done. She’s a bubbly character.

On a scale of one to four stars, what would you rate this movie?

I would give it ★★★.

To whom would you recommend this movie?

I think anyone can watch it. It’s a pretty gender-neutral film, but I think women would enjoy it more.

How often do you go to the movies?

I actually don’t go to the theater too much. I watch a lot of movies at home.

Would you buy this movie on DVD?

No, not for myself, maybe as gift for a friend.

What’s new?

We just had our first event at Bonsai. Everyone had a great time. We had 14 pairs, and at least one pair left hand-in-hand giggling.

Valentine’s Day we have a singles-only mixer. They can go to www.projectsingles.net to get on our mailing list. All the updates are on the website. We also have a meet-up group we created. It’s on facebook, myspace - we’re everywhere.
