Plot: Jesse (Alyssa Milano, Charmed) is a sassy, intelligent woman who has yet to find "Mr. Right"—until she bumps into Ethan (Christopher Gorham, Ugly Betty, Harpers Island), a writer pushed to the edge of despair after having another novel rejected by publishers. For Jesse, the encounter offers more than a chance to inspire the artist in Ethan again. It also opens a new, romantic chapter in her life... with one huge complication. Moments after meeting the perfect guy for her, Jesse meets Mr. Perfect— Troy (Michael Landes, Possession), a confident and successful advertising executive who makes almost every moment elegant and romantic. Soon Jesse is in over her head and grappling with the ultimate romantic paradox: what does a girl do when she meets "Mr. Right" after already meeting the right guy? Ultimately, what Jesse discovers about love reflects what the audience discovers about the story itself: Things are not always what they seem. My Girlfriends Boyfriend is a classic love story turned upside down, a romantic comedy that blends a warm sincerity with fresh, stylized storytelling and some very big surprises.
I'm a huge fan of Alyssa Milano and boy, I'm glad to have watched this movie today. Think of movies along the lines of Sweet November, The Notebook, Lakehouse, Time Traveller's Wife... My Girlfriend's Boyfriend is probably the "most realistic" romantic-comedy film out there so far.
The writers should be applauded for their clever use of wit and humour in this film with a little bit of sarcasm here and there and the storyline.. is actually somewhat original and creative. Don't think too much about Jesse (Alyssa Milano) being in a love triangle. What you see may not be what you expect at the very end of the movie, which really left me with a very bittersweet feeling and the movie just kept on playing in my head over and over again (I am watching the movie again as I am typing this right now)
The lines kept lingering in my head for a while now. Most of them were funny.. sweet. And yes, the movie inspired me enough to continue blogging.. yet again. Heehee.
