Substance: What could have been a delightful romance was marred by the fact that the leading lady is a 'ho'. Deceiving the guy you are already engaged to (and sleeping with) to look for another "true love" is shameless and despicable. I pity the guy she ended up with, and he's no prize either,

because the relationship is founded on magic, not knowledge.
Style: Well-made and well-filmed; the score consists of really old romantic standards. A PG rating seems rather low for the tawdry characters, but there are only allusions to sex and people in bed together, so that's supposed to be OK these days.
Note: It seems odd today to watch people live without cell phones, airplane security, or DVDs.

A woman obsesses over a man she heard on the radio.

It would be a reasonable concept for a thriller - not a romantic comedy. But it's not too awful, for a Nora Ephron movie. Unlike the other Ephron movies I've seen, this one at least has characters that are nice people.
