No, we're not punking you. Ashton Kutcher is back on the big screen, this time with actress Amanda Peet in an adorable new romantic comedy, A Lot Like Love. The flick tracks the twosome, as Oliver and Emily, over the course of the seven years that they've known each other. Read on for the Kidzworld review!

A Lot Like Love - Oliver and Emily

Emily (Amanda Peet) is a punk chick coming out of a rocky relationship when she meets dorky Oliver on a plane to New York. While spending an afternoon walking through the city, Oliver reveals his ambitions of starting an internet company, betting Emily that in six years, he'll be living in a huge house with his hot wife. She doesn't buy it, saying that he'll probably be jobless and living at his parents' house! Before they go their separate ways, Oliver gives Emily his parents' phone number, telling her to call it in six years and she'll find out that he's become successful.

A Lot Like Love - Three Years Later

Three years after their initial meeting, Emily is out of her punk phase and is an aspiring actress living in Los Angeles. When she's dumped by her boyfriend Peter (Gabriel Mann), she goes through her little black book to find a date for New Years Eve and comes across the piece of paper with Oliver's phone number on it. After she calls and discovers that he's living with his parents (and annoying sister, Ellen, played by Taryn Manning), they make plans to meet up that night. Emily brings the now-hot Oliver along to a glamorous New Year's party where he meets her pals Michelle (Kathryn Hahn) and Gina (Ali Larter). During the dramatic evening, Oliver reveals that he's moving to San Francisco the following day to work on his internet diaper company with his buddy Jeeter (Kal Penn).

A Lot Like Love - Two Years Later

Two years later, Emily is working as a photographer and Oliver's business is booming. His personal life, however, is not going so well. His girlfriend breaks up with him and he goes back to LA to take a breather, only to spot Emily's photography work in a gallery. The two meet up, and during breakfast, discover that Emily's supposed friend Gina is now dating her ex-boyfriend Peter. To deal with their break-up pain, Oliver and Emily escape for the night on a junk food-filled road trip to the desert. The next day, however, they say good-bye again and Oliver heads to New York with Jeeter for a big business meeting. The big question is...will they meet again?

A Lot Like Love - DVD Features

Not only will you love this flick, you'll also dig the extra features. Check out tons of deleted scenes, hilarious bloopers and music video from the band, Aqualung.

A Lot Like Love - The Bottom Line

If you're a fan of cute romantic comedies, check this flick out the next time you hit the theaters.
