Producers: Doug Draizin
Unfortunately for this comedy, that was one of the few times that I actually found myself laughing out loud, and that's despite the film being set in one of my favourite cities in the world, Las Vegas! Hayek's performance was weak at best, and Perry doesn't really stretch much from his familiar TV role (give him a cellular phone, and yes, he's a businessman?).
This film is actually based on a philosophical theory that I strongly believe in ("Your destiny has already been decided, you just have to read the signs"), and yet, even that bit of knowledge made little difference in the viewing of this sub-par romantic comedy. Mind you, if you want to hear some cool Elvis tunes, and / or enjoy either Perry or Hayek for any reason, this movie might just rev your engines. Otherwise, I suggest you avoid the "fool" tag stapled in its title, and re-rent the greatest romantic comedy of all time, WHEN HARRY MET SALLY... (10/10) another ten times.
