Utterly delightful romance score is Shaiman's best

Well, to save myself the hassle of typing out exactly the same review for yet another time, I refer you to my reviews for any other Marc Shaiman romantic comedy score.

Light comedy or romance + Marc Shaiman = winning formula.

This one actually has even more going for it than usual: Jeff Atmajian's gorgeous orchestration, Dennis Sands's perfect recording, and above all Shaiman's wonderful, wonderful main theme, which garnered worldwide acclaim in the soundtrack community after it was heard in the trailer for Saving Private Ryan.

Sorry, there's nothing else really that I can say! Buy the damn thing. (The film wasn't bad either.)
