Theater Thursday

It's Thursday kiddos! That means its Theater Thursday. This week we're looking at Only You, which stars Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr (pre-iron man). 

Circa 1994, Faith (Tomei) a middle school teacher is going about her life, loving every moment.She is surrounded by her best friend Kate (Bonnie Hunt) and her soon to be husband. One afternoon she stumbles upon the name of a person she was given as a child. Faith had put the name behind her because as a child, she went to the fair and was told her soul-mates name. 

Instantly Faith realizes she must follow her destiny and find this man who called her house from overseas, looking for her fiance. Once Faith and Kate get to Italy they run into Peter (Downey Jr.) who may or may not be her destined man. 

This movie is extremely cute. If you believe in faith, destiny and love then it's right up your alley.

I like these kinds of stories but at the same time they make me gag, does that mean I am a bad person? haha

I've never seen this one, but your review sounds pretty good. Sometimes a good sappy romance is just what the dr. ordered.

AHHHHH!!!!!! This is one of my all-time favorite movies!!! Made me love Robert Downey, Jr. Which makes his current career resurrection particularly sweet for me. :)
