There’s no chemistry between Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Sam Heughan, and how could there be when they’re stuck in a one-sided conversation for half the film? Mira’s texts are also heartbreaking.

After Rob spends the night, Mira wakes up to hear him talking with her younger sister Suzy (Sofia Barclay), and for a brief moment, it appears that he’s found a better match — someone with the ability to smile. But Mira must find a way to love again, and there appears to be potential if they can just get past their One Big Secret, which will necessitate an absurdly unprofessional display of love on Rob’s part.

Again, Dion comes in handy as a love guru, playing a barely fictionalized version of herself as she shares details from her real-life relationship with Angélil. Though we see Dion’s strong survivor side, her vulnerability remains one of her most endearing assets — the same quality that makes her persona too much for some.

“Love Again” was never intended for skeptics, but fans will appreciate her first film role as a comeback. It’s a big-screen romance that aspires to make fans feel the same way Dion’s music does, as if their hearts can keep going.
