Return to Me review

Directed by Bonnie Hunt

Starring David Duchovny, Minnie Driver and Carroll O'Connor

In this film Duchovny plays an architect named Bob whose wife dies in a tragic car accident on the way home from an awards ceremony. Driver's character, meanwhile, is waiting in the hospital, in desperate need of a heart transplant.

The movie moves forward a while, and Bob's best friend is trying to get him to go out and start dating again. He invites him to a restaurant for a double date. While at the restaurant, he meets Grace, the girl who needed a heart transplant (and she is the waitress and grand-daughter to the owner, not his date). They start seeing each other, and eventually fall in love.

Of course, since it's a rom com, there are funny parts and there are twists and turns (but you can figure those out when you see the movie for yourself).

Overall, I think this is a fantastic movie. The acting is great and is very realistic, the funny parts are funny, and there's romance, but it doesn't drown you in love.

This is a movie I can watch over and over again.
