    Fate cuts it close in Serendipity, and I do think Fate is the protagonist of this old-fashioned romcom (the premise could have come out the Golden Age of Hollywood, especially with the Christmas trappings) that has two watchable stars (John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale) have a fortuitous meet-cute while in other relationships, and leave it up to wild chance if they are ever to meet again. Wild chance and being obsessed with one another, I guess. But though they have agency, Fate is really the one to watch, throwing all sorts of crazy coincidences our way so that it's undeniable that this is fantasy. And it's Fate's movie so much, once it's done its job, we kind of cut to the end while I still had questions. Bit of a fumble at the whatever-yard line there. I do wish the movie had exclusively used those jazzy, bluesy pieces on its soundtrack because the cloying, forgettable pop ballads are just awful. And relentless. Too loud and on the nose. That collection of non-hits really sunk the picture for me. 2 months 2 weeks ago
