happy accidents - a movie

It's been a while since I wrote about movies I've seen this year. I've seen a bunch in the interim.

This one has motivated me to write. I came across it when I discovered you can sort within a genre by user ratings at Netflix. Happy Accidents was near the top in Science Fiction.

I think it is a good movie and with 7.3 on IMDB it seems others agree. This is apt from Rotten Tomatoes:
Happy Accidents has enough quirkiness and charm to rise above the more formulaic entries in the romantic comedy genre.
Quirky, that's the ticket. But it doomed the effort to just $688,532 at the box office.

Both the leads Marisa Tomei and Vincent D'Onofrio (yeah, that one and THIS ONE) were really good. So good. There is a lot of 12 Monkeys in this movie with the time travel and such (don't want to give anything away).

If you've got 2 hours, this ain't your worst bet for a movie. It's a love story after all.
