Plot Outline: After causing the Oregon shoe company he works for to lose hundreds of millions of dollars, Drew Baylor is fired for his mistake, and promptly also dumped by his girlfriend, Ellen. On the verge of suicide, Drew is oddly given a new purpose in life when he is brought back to his family’s small Kentucky hometown of Elizabethtown following the death of his father, Mitch, as it falls to him to make sure that his dying wishes are fulfilled. On the way home, Drew meets a flight attendant, Claire Colburn(Dunst), with whom he falls in love, in a romance that helps his life get back on track…
This is a very nice movie for a saturday afternoon. I rented this movie last saturday and it was really worthwhile. No guns, no kills, no sounds of cars crashing. Just a story about a guy and a girl who meet and fall in love. Very nice if you want something soft just to get entertained. If you need something heavier, get Saw II which is already for rent and comments I heard say it’s as good as the first.
Still, our Legolas just keeps me amazed. Seems so well suited for so different characters. :)
