Best part of story, including ending: I found the story unrealistic, since no smart woman should ever get together with her stalker.

Best scene in story: When Will tells Emma that he's been her stalker for years.

Opinion about the main character: The movie doesn't give us a good enough reason as to why Will is madly in love with Emma, so I found the whole love story so shallow.
