The premise of the whole movie can be summed up by the movie's title - "How do you know?" How do you know which Mr. Right Now is the ONE, your Mr. Right? How do you know if you will be good at anything other than what you have been excelling at for a considerable time in your life? This question is actually very timely - not only for people who lost their jobs and are trying to learn a new trade to make a living, but also for those who are ready to move forward to the next big step in their lives like marriage, a family, a new business or retirement. How do you know what is the right thing to do?
It was pretty good - very entertaining - and it made the audience think. What would you do? How would you know? And watch out for the great proposal scene that led to enlightenment!
My husband and I ended up asking ourselves if we were the same way... When you find the one you have been praying for (like the reformed bad boy that I never thought God will actually give me) and you realize that you don't have to change who you are to be the ONE for him (even if you drive him crazy most of the time) then you're fifty percent there! When you figure out that he has been praying for someone like you too and you realize that there's nothing about him you really want to change (even if your parents don't agree with you about that part) - hold on tight and never let go! You have a keeper! So that's how we knew...
And what about the how do you know the right thing to do? Monk (who played the psychiatrist here) had a great piece of advice that I think everyone should at least try once - happiness in life is about finding out what you want and learning how to ask for help to get what you want.
It's a great date night movie! Especially if you want to reflect on "how do you know" with your significant other. *wink, wink* Happy watching, my friends!
