Really enjoyed it!

Was looking for a movie to watch and came across this one. It did not disappoint! The main characters were unfamiliar but delivered! After renting it, I bought it so I could watch it again! The love scenes show no nudity that I noticed. This was a great love story with passion and keeps you on the edge of your seat at the end!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Sensitively written and acted, this sweet romance is easy to root for, if predictable. Though Lana is clearly posited as the underdog audiences can relate to, it's a bit hard to buy her as a downtrodden sap. Meanwhile, the charming Ryan doesn't really feel like the bad boy he's painted to be as the film opens, so it's not much of a surprise when he turns out to be tender.

The film makes a lot out of the fact that Lana is slinging drinks when big sports star Ryan takes notice of her. But that won't faze audiences who are used to seeing conventionally beautiful women from every socioeconomic status snag wealthy men in the movies -- the differences in their backgrounds and bank accounts don't make for much of an obstacle. But there's one thing that does make an impact in this film, and it's a doozy: The stars have chemistry, and though their relationship ignites quickly, watching them evolve from an attraction to a supportive relationship is a delight. There aren't many surprises in See You Soon -- you know these two are meant for each other the second they appear together on-screen -- but the central romance is engaging in an old-fashioned way that may put some viewers in mind of slow burns like Carol or The Bodyguard. Love isn't everything, but it's enough to make this movie worth it for unabashed romance fans.
