She's a working-class girl who dreams of making the world a better place. He's a wealthy charmer who thinks the world is his playground. Somewhere over the next two decades, these two very different people realize that the love they've been hoping for has been there for them all along"--Container.

A beautiful, heartbreaking story. It did begin a little slow, but I fell in love with the idea of it--how precious life is & how one person can change it so much.

Just okay-not the greatest script and not the best acting. Glad I didn't spend money to go see it on the "big screen"!

The book wasn't great and the movie was worse.

I'd say that the movie was certainly not brilliant, but it was worth watching. For those of you who enjoy the old-fashioned girl meets boy romance, it's a good film. I agree that the male character played wonderfully by actor Jim Sturgess was a bit of a worldly idiot in a good portion of it, but then again...aren't there a few of them 'out there' who exhibit these same qualities in life?! I think he's quite attractive, and above average in his looks. So, I Disagree with that comment made here. eheeh! On the whole, Anne Hathaway did a tremendous job in characterizing the Emma Morley person! Not easy to maintain the Brit. dialect, but she pulled it off well enough!! I liked a lot of the locations of the film, which included Scotland, and parts of UK. Going to France is always fun, eh?! heee! I also appreciated how the nineties era was captured in song, dance and fashion. So many movies are nostalgic about the eighties, or further back and this one chose an era Not too far from the present and portrayed it well.
I liked some of the development in Both of the main two characters. I could see some of it happening in real life. I especially enjoyed seeing the maturity Emma and Dexter each make in the end! Emma is unsure of herself but ends up much more Sure in the end! And, 'Dex' sort of sees the error of his selfish ways. I think the character I liked least was the live-in, 'comedian' boyfriend of Emma's. The pianist was more her type, definitely!! Okay. Enough said. Sorry if I spoil any plot lines for someone who has not seen this. Just thought I'd say a few things that have not been said about this film.

This concept of one special date every year for one couple was better realized in the old Alan Alda movie, "Same Time Next Year", which was an adaptation from a stage play. In "One Day" the Jim Sturgiss character was such an awful person, that it really spoiled the movie. No one could watch this and root for him, or identify with someone so self-centered. Anne Hathaway, as always, developed a wonderful ugly duckling - to - lovely swan character, and her performance would be the only reason to watch this.

An interesting idea for a film,.. but poorly realized.
