Movie Moments: #97


Serendipity (2001)

I love this film.  It’s corny, a chick flick and there are probably good reasons not to like it, but I do.  Serendipity” is when someone finds something that they weren't expecting to find, these days loosely translated as” a happy  accident”.  Hiring this movie without knowing anything about it and then finidng I liked it was serendipitous.

During the Christmas shopping season, Jonathon Trager meets Sara Thomas.  Bumping into each other again they realise the attraction they have for each other, but each is already committed to someone else. Sara, a believer in fate, asks Jonathon to write his name and number on a $5 note, then she gives it in payment for something, saying that if fate wants them to be together, the note will come back to her.  She writes her name and number in the book she is reading and says that she will give it to a bookseller. Will they find each other?  Will it be too late?  Will they styill feel the same way? Watch the film.

Dean: You know the Greeks didn't write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: "Did he have passion?"


The place where Jonathon and Sara have ice cream, Serendipity 3, really exists by that name, as does the Frozen Hot Chocolate drink they have in the film.  The table where they sat is now known as the Star Table.


Although it's not from the film, I couldn't resist posting this:
