Destiny Faith (Marisa Tomei) believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other. From the Ouija board, she has found the name of her missing half, and it is D-A-M-O-N B-R-A-D-L-E-Y. Later, at the carnival, the fortune teller sees the name Damon Bradley in the Crystal Ball and Faith is convinced. She is told that “You make your own destiny,…don’t wait for it to come to you”, but she is looking for Damon. Fourteen years later she is engaged to a dull podiatrist and plans to marry until she gets a call from one of his classmates who is on his way to Venice, Italy. The classmate is Damon Bradley. Rushing to the airport to see her soul-mate, she misses him and the plane, but decides, then and there, to go after him. So Faith and her sister-in-law Kate both board the next plane for Italy hoping to find her Damon.

Dove Review

“Only you” is a romantic film starring Marisa Tomei as Faith, Bonnie Hunt as Kate, and Robert Downey Jr. as Walter. While teenagers, these three young people experiment with a Ouija board. As a consequence of their experience with the spirit influencing the board, Faith, in her adult life, sets out on a quest to scour the world and find her destined “Prince Charming”. This movie reminds me of “Sleepless in Seattle”. This film is charming, romantic, and enjoyable. The scenery is breathtaking.

This movie is for more mature viewers. There are scenes of unmarried couples kissing. There is alcohol use throughout as characters converse while drinking liquor from a bottle covered by a brown paper bag. The characters converse with spirits via the Ouija board and attempt to predict the future by gazing into a crystal ball. Due to the occult inspired nature of Faith’s quest and the constant alcohol use throughout this movie, it is not recommended as family viewing material.
