A cutesy retro throwback to the 50s romantic comedies, with a twist in that it's the madcap woman who doesn't want to get married while her incredibly patient, romantic boyfriend does. Good scenes showing their vibrant lives much enhanced by real-feel friendships--including a recently married couple who show the ups and downs of intimacy--and a cheap but decent apt in NYC. However, there's a weird, uncomfortable scene where she takes off to Italy to find herself and to look up a "charming" exchange student from college who negged her back then by calling her a lesbian because, ah, what real woman can resist a compliment-spouting Italian? ;-) Her brief fling turns dark and seems harsh: negativity for a woman exercising her sexual agency. You can decide whether she makes the right choice at the end.
