Watch this if you liked: “Juno”

Sam Mendez, the director behind "Revolutionary Road", delivers a quaint love story where a couple who is expecting their first child, travels to various cities to find the perfect location to raise their unborn daughter. Throughout their journey, they encounter many misadventures and discover fresh connections, ranging from relatives to old chums, who might just help them realise "home" on their own.

Unlike most romance movies, it doesn't inhabit the cliche boy finds girl, boy loses girl and boy finds girl again storyline. On the other hand, it dwells deep into the relationship on what happens after you've found that special someone. They've already established early on that these two beings are so in love with each other, when normally this would be the end sequence for most romantic flicks.

Much thought have been put onto this leading couple played by Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski, where both performed flawlessly and managed to leave us all warm and lovey-dovey inside. Maya gave a genuine performance as a woman who makes promises seem solid and oddly never wants to marry, while John was excellent as the loving and ever supportive boyfriend. Moreover, he has got to have one of the manliest, sexiest voice made for radio deejays. You'll find a couple of scenes where this goofy guy kept trying to say or do the right things, but seems to come out all wrong. Couples watching this all around might be able to relate to the adorable things these two do to and for each other. The disappointments were done in a truly comedic way so that the movie never feels too draggy. Needless to say, the two actors complement each other like bread and butter.

Throughout the story, you'll experience some crazy characters that were so disgraceful that they'll make you laugh and cringe at the same time. Take for example the stroller hating, hippie couple played by Catherine O'Hara and Chris Messina, who in the world would have the ability within them to "make love" in front of their kids? Apparently, them.

Overall, this film will leave a sweet taste in your mouth and with a love so solid as theirs, it'll make you wish you had some.
