plays a schoolteacher who decides just days before her wedding that she has to go to Italy in search of her true love, fulfilling a destiny that was predicted to her by a carnival fortune teller when she was a little girl. What she finds instead is , and she’s not about to settle for this suave con-man before finding the man she was meant to be with. Beautifully shot on European locations, the film benefits from Tomei’s bubbly charm and Downey’s easy presence, while  steals scenes as Tomei’s best friend.  Excellent photography and art direction by Luciana Arrighi are a plus, but as has been director Norman Jewison’s habit of late, his editing is lazy and his pacing uneven.
