  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Imaginemeandyou.jpg

A fairly standard but very sweet and heartwarming Romantic Comedy about a newlywed who finds herself falling in love with someone else - the lonely woman who arranged the wedding flowers. As she's walking down the aisle to her husband-to-be.

The film stars Piper Perabo as Rachel, Lena Headey as Luce, Matthew Goode as Heck, and Anthony Head as Rachel's father Ned.

Tropes used in Imagine Me and You include:
  • Almost Kiss: Interrupted by a passing car.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall - Heck may have done this at the very end when he looks at the camera and smiles.
  • The Casanova - Cooper.
  • Chekhov's Skill - When Luce teaches Rachel how to project your voice, and later Rachel uses this to find Luce. It's really quite romantic. It's a shame if you've read this and not seen the movie yet.
  • Cloudcuckoolander - Ned.
  • Converse with the Unconscious: Well more accurately speaking with the plastered.
  • Covers Always Lie: The wedding dress Rachel is wearing on the cover is not the same as the one she wears in the movie.
  • Daydream Surprise - Rachel, in H's classroom with Luce.
  • False Soulmate: Heck and Rachel.
  • Foreshadowing - Used quite a lot, and very well at that.
    • A woman comes into the flower show and breaks down crying because she is pregnant and her boyfriend doesn't know. Later, during the end credits we see Cooper walking around with a baby.
    • Heck mentions early in the film that he wants to write a book about partying around the world. Later Heck does just that.
    • Luce puts the missing ring on Rachel's finger.
  • Flower Motifs - Pretty much inevitable, in a Rom Com starring a florist, but most important is Rachel's favorite, the lily, which Luce translates as "I dare you to love me".
    • Also consider the origin of the term "Yuri" in the context of the film.
  • Girls Love
  • Hands-On Approach - When Luce teaches Rachel how to project her voice.
  • Happy Ending - Even Heck gets one, despite his wife leaving him.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy - Explored rather deeply as a central theme of the film.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Luce, Rachel (eventually).
  • Lost Wedding Ring
  • Love At First Sight - Essentially the premise behind the romance in the whole movie.
  • Love Triangle - More accurately a 3rd wheel.
  • No Bisexuals: It is implied that Rachel was never truly attracted to Heck.

 You are my best friend. That was enough before, and it will be enough again.
