|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Likable confection about a young woman who spends her whole life searching for her perfect mate--whose name was conjured up in childhood on a Ouija board; fate and happenstance bring her to Europe to meet her ``other half. '' Tomei's earnest and appealing performance makes the far-fetched story work. Director Jewison provides a dreamy travelogue of Italy (photographed by Sven Nykvist, no less) as her backdrop. Like so many contemporary romantic comedies, this one invokes an earlier one (ROMAN HOLIDAY) to justify its existence.
