Storyline

After his wife Maggie passes away, Sam Baldwin and his 8-year-old son Jonah relocate from Chicago to Seattle to escape the grief associated with Maggie's death. Eighteen months later Sam is still grieving and can't sleep. Although Jonah misses his mother, he wants his father to get a new wife despite Sam having not even contemplated dating again. On Christmas Eve, Sam (on Jonah's initiative) ends up pouring his heart out on a national radio talk show about his magical and perfect marriage to Maggie, and how much he still misses her. Among the many women who hear Sam's story and fall in love with him solely because of it is Annie Reed, a Baltimore-based newspaper writer. Annie's infatuation with Sam's story and by association Sam himself is despite being already engaged. But Annie's relationship with her straight-laced fiancé Walter is unlike her dream love life in the movie An Affair to Remember (1957). She even writes to Sam proposing they meet atop the Empire State Building on ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

The sequence Annie is taking to Sam's houseboat, which is on Westlake Ave. N, is wrong. She is taking I-5 North, and then is seen taken a right off of Western Ave. which is over one mile to the west of the freeway onto the street which she turned east, meaning she is heading back to the freeway. Then she is seen going southbound onto Westlake Ave. which cannot be accessed from the direction Annie was headed; she would've had to have taken the Mercer Street Exit and taken Westlake Ave. N to where Sam's houseboat was, some three miles further. Additionally, Westlake Ave. from downtown to the Fremont bridge where Annie is seen driving north is an arterial thoroughfare, meaning there is no parking anywhere along Westlake Ave. See more »

if a movie touches you
26 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

like this one, a 10 is all you can do. Tom is great, Meg the woman plays the woman's role like nobody else could have.....If I get tears in a movie, the movie is a m o v i e ........touching. Thank you folks who did it, the folks who wrote this wonderful story. Am I sentimental? Yess. And it feels good. Each turn of the story makes you wish, hope, and finally no violence in a movie. What a relief. If you watch this movie around x-mas, you probable get more sentimental than in a hot summer night, I don't no. It took me 12 years to get to see this movie. Heard so much and everything I heard was an understatement. Thank you Tom and Meg and specially Ross, love you.
