  • ...touching and genuinely romantic...

  • If Only this weren't one of the sappiest, stupidest, silliest, and most vacuously meaningless romantic comedies I've ever had the misfortune to waste 96 minutes of my life upon ... I'd have some nicer things to say.

    Jun 18, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • it's too maudlin and depressing to make for a good romantic drama and it's way too sappy to work as a drama/thriller

    Love Hewitt is typically not a favorite of mine; however I found her endearing in this movie. I didn't love it, but I thought it was cute nonetheless. I didn't expect that ending!

    Cute and occasionally sweet but nothing really special.

    "If Only" is a good,underrated,romantic story about appreciating what you have in front of you because before you know it, it's all gone. Jennifer Love Hewitt's portrayal of the dynamic, vivacious and impetuous young is very good. At the end you will get a spiritual message that most of us forget to apply daily, "Live and love like if it were the last day of you life".

    I saw this movie about two-three year ago and I was very impressed with the whole story. The action happened in London, UK, where the beautiful American actress Jennifer Love Hewitt interpreting Samantha Andrews was studying music. She and her British colleague Paul Nicholls interpreting Peter made a beautiful couple, but they had problems; he was somehow being inattentively with her feelings until the moment she had an accident and died. He was devastated until he got another chance. The day that she died was repeated but with differences and the most important at the end of the day he made a sacrifice and saved her, giving his live in exchange. The hole thing about getting another chance of doing something different, better is great and captivated me..
