In the course of one magical evening, Jonathan (John Cusack) and Sara (Kate Beckinsale) meet unexpectedly... then part when she decides they must let fate determine if they are meant to be together. Years later, they are both engaged to others, but cannot give up the dream that - despite time, distance and the obstacles that conspire to keep them apart - they will one day meet again.
Cusack and Beckinsale meet in New York and spend an evening together, there is instant chemistry. Beckinsale gets cold feet though when she writes her number on a piece of paper and it is blown away by the wind in transition. She sees it as a sign that it's not to be there and then. Cusack's insistence that it was an accident prompts her to put into motion a few ideas that have lottery odds of them meeting again. Years later they are both destined to marry other people, but they both are still thinking of each other, although they have not set eyes on each other since that night. Their strong feelings lead them to take the more conventional way to finding each other.
Enjoyable rom com with good performances by Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack.
