Summary: Really good feel-good date movie.
Hugh Jackman is absolutely charming in this straightforward, predictable romance with Meg Ryan (gee). Liev Schreiber adds some mild mystery and scientific interest, but is made to play the role of buffoon for the middle 3/4 of the movie. So he's a tad wasted. Breckin Meyer plays the spoiler who seems a little out of synch with the rest of the cast... but he manages to pull it off, but just barely. The movie could have been a lot better if it wasn't directed to be a typical Meg Ryan romance flick. But, that's what they were going for, and that's what they got.
