It Had to Be You

Steven Feder (2000)

PG Certificate


Our Score
It's the handsome New York locations rather than the stars that add visual appeal to this emotionally uneven romantic comedy. In fact, leading lady Natasha Henstridge looks so frumpy that you wonder why Michael Vartan would fall for her after the strangers both check into the Plaza Hotel to plan their respective weddings. But fate - not to mention writer/director Steven Feder's overuse of coincidences - ensures that this undemanding time-filler sticks to its predictable path. Henstridge and Vartan play their roles with charm and vitality, and survive the clumsy, message-laden dialogue thanks to some easy chemistry.


Two strangers check into the same hotel to plan their weddings. Since their partners are busy elsewhere, they turn to each other for advice in sorting out the details - but end up falling in love in the process. Romantic comedy, starring Natasha Henstridge, Michael Vartan, David Healy and Frankie Muniz.
