"What if one split second sent your life in two completely different directions?"

Helen, a public relations officer in London, is unexpectedly fired, sees the doors of the Tube buzz shut right in front of her. We see what happens now that she's missed the subway and her boyfriend Gerry has all the time in the world to cover the traces of his infidelity. But also what would happen if she had taken the metro and found Gerry in the arms of his ex-girlfriend Lydia when she got home, after which Helen got drunk and became acquainted with the endearing Scotsman James.

Good film that tells two stories in which the main character misses the subway in one and not in the other. A fun romantic film where a small thing can have big consequences. The two different stories are edited parallel to each other in an entertaining way. Gwyneth Paltrow is charming in her dual role (both with her long hair and her short haircut).

Original story with a nice Paltrow who looks much nicer with short hair. I found the engaging James disturbing at times, a bit Hugh Grant quality. This was my review from 10 years ago.
Watched it again now and frankly I couldn't remember the movie, let alone even rated that movie here. This doesn't happen often, but if you regularly watch some movies, there will be some amnesia here or there. Actually I didn't bother James a bit this time and I think Paltrow is really good playing. The original story remains intriguing to follow and revolves around the fate that would lead our lives. This doesn't happen too often either, but I'm raising it to 7/10.
