What a wonderful movie. I wonder how great the book would be after watching the movie. I think half of what made the movie grade is the setting of the movie. This movie goes straight to the top of the list for me. Or somewhere around there. I would just say watch the movie if you even sort of like romantic comedies. Though its more of a romance with some comic relief than a romantic comedy. I will definitely watch this movie again.

Bonus Features:
Don't watch the bonus features until after watching the movie. Tuscany 101 will give away the movie. But do watch it after finishing the movie. There are three deleted scenes which are alright; the one with the painting beneath the fresco was best.

Update: I didn't realize I've seen so many good movies. Thus despite my good feelings towards this movie, mainly the spontaneous decisions and the different struggles through which the protagonists goes through I seemed to relate with, I guess it doesn't compare to some of the other movies I've seen. I certainly like the way 500 Days of Summer was presented. I guess I just focused on the general feel for Under the Tuscan Sun and wasn't paying as much attention to dialogue, etc. And somehow, like the movie I ranked today (Meet the Robinsons), it came down to how this movie compares to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. To which it lost. But in this case I decided it should beat Harold and Kumar, to which it actually did worse on RT.
