The Very Thought of You

"Good"

The Very Thought of You Review


Nearly overwhelming in its cuteness, The Very Thought of You tells the wholly unlikely story of an American (Potter) on the run from her unbearably dull life. When she flies to London on a lark, she encounters three British guys in the space of 48 hours, all of whom fall in love with her immediately. The catch? The three are all best friends.

Joseph Fiennes is the lovable one of the bunch, and naturally he and Potter are destined for one another. But Fiennes' friendship with his two pals (Sewell and Hollander) keeps him a dark horse in the game. Will he go for the girl or not? And what will she do when she finds out they're all pals?

Sappy and sentimental, Thought of You is nevertheless a considerably entertaining venture, filled with heart and cleverness despite its cliche-ridden thematics.

(Aka Martha, Meet Frank, Daniel and Laurence. I'm not sure which title is worse.)
