An Affair to Remember


Rating: 4

If you're looking for a good classic romance story this is it. This is the perfect example of how you can have a good romantic movie with out any one sleeping together. Even though the story could be a little far fetched (falling in love in a couple days; breaking up long term, serious relationships; and maintaining no communications for 6 months and then thinking they're going to get married), it is morally straight. It even goes as far as discouraging adultery or loose relationships in support of marriage and showing that finding someone you can truly be in love with is possible.

The story displays how thinking you know what's best for the other person (without communicating your thoughts to them) can, unintentionally, damage the relationship. Communication is a key issue, both seem to communicate pretty effectively to their previous fiances that they wish to end the relationship, but to the person they truly love they seem to have a harder time communicating.

It was quite frustrating that Terry wouldn't tell Nickie what happened and that Nickie thought that she had simply decided to not show up. However, things do work out in the end.

The main reason for this not getting a 5 is that we didn't feel motivated to do good afterwards. It was a good, clean film with great acting and a good story, but nothing earth shattering.
