I don't seem to remember hearing much about the movie when it was released in theaters, but it's sure worth watching at home!

The story is predictable and evolves in fairly traditional ways, boy helps deliver girl, boy moves away from girl, boy tries desperately (and sappily with that lame poem) to win girl back, finally they get together.

It is most enjoyable, and in the end a real feel-good movie.

Sometimes a sweet love story with a predictable ending is just what is needed.

Jude Law's engaging performance as the lovestruck Danny itself makes the film worth seeing.

Jude Law is a splendid talent but his part much too romanticized and fundamentally uninteresting.

I really enjoyed it.

Quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen.

It is worth watching this movie JUST to see the Nina/Jesus romance....

Found it a Waste of time .

For the most part, the character is described as a closed and slightly dull personality, and Mol plays it with a stiffness to match.

The end is almost predictable, but enjoyable.

It's really a cute film, just takes a major suspension of disbelief to buy into the all-too-predictable ending.

I highly recommend this film to those who happen to enjoy films about confusion in love and about how family can be involved in a person's decisions in life.

Anna is so dull that her blind sister Nina, played by Jennifer Tilly and her unexpected romantic partner Jesus (Vincent Laresca) completely steal the romance of the film.

I only bought this movie because of its sound track, but I was pleasantly taken by it, I found myself watching it already several times with a nice piece of cake and a cup of tea in boring cold afternoons.

Even my boyfriend ended up sitting down and watching it with me and he enjoyed it, too.

It should not have been produced at all, it's a waste of money.

Sporting a fine cast, this dreamy film about a motley family and birth and death and love offers a fun scene to scene linear flow, keeps the sentimentality in check, builds its predictable love story, and manages several subplots all the while holding interest and easing a somewhat difficult buy-in resulting in a good all around romantic flick.

This film is a very predictable romantic comedy, that can include a few laughs and a few tears.

It's not a big screen film, as is just as good watched on video, but I still recommend it for those rainy days, when all you want is something light and entertaining to pass the time.

An enjoyable, light-hearted romantic comedy, this movie suffers from its improbability.

Gretchen Moll plays down as Anna, the safe and boring caretaker of her blind sister.

I enjoyed it, I like Rom-Coms.

A large part of the latter half of the film is strained and repetitive.

When I first began to watch this movie, I thought, OH BOY this is going to be BORING!

On top, the storyline is incoherent: Danny's immediate crush on a girl he hasn't seen since her birth is not backed by anything other than Gretchen Mol's nice, but perhaps rather bland appearance.

The story is wonderfully done, slowly drawing you into its beauty, it winds around you till you find yourself immersed in it's splendor.

The most entertaining relationship occurs between blind sister Jennifer Tilly (as Nina Swan) and Spanish savior Vincent Laresca (as Jesus).

So, when you already know what is gonna happen and how, complete attention falls on things like cinematography and compelling conversations.

If a movie is going to have a lot of formulaic plot points, then it has to be executed perfectly in order to be enjoyable.

A way predictable, albeit quirky romantic comedy with some amazing performances.

"Never Been Kissed" is a good example of a movie which has a very conventional plot, but is thoroughly engaging because of good acting, well-placed comedic moments, and good directing.

Jeremy Piven is always entertaining - man, he needs more roles.

Found this movie a complete waste of time.

However Jude's intense stares at her and genuine obsession make the film a real treat.

As the movie progressed it became more enjoyable.

Kinda put a kink in an otherwise very enjoyable movie.

Kleenex handy would be helpful, but a movie worth watching for sure.
