I loved "Elizabethtown" for many reasons.
The characters were real. Both the main characters and minor characters, even those in the background that don't say much, seem like people I know. Drew and Clarie's endless cell phone conversation is romantically intriguing. Claire thinks she's being mysterious, but she's really not. Still, they are quirky enough that they just made me laugh. (I mean, Chuck and Cindy: The Wedding ... that's random and hilarious!)
Actually, not just the cell phone conversation, but all the interaction between Drew and Claire is great. Then there's a great line by Claire: "Trust me. Everyone is less mysterious than they think they are."
I also love some of themes, especially that people sometimes know different versions about people, but in the end the bond two people have is all that matters -- even if it's different from the bond that person has with someone else. Relationships are meant to be compared but rather enjoyed, knowing relationships influence who we become -- hopefully more for the good than bad. Also, it's in the moments we least expect our lives to be influenced that they are. And these can be the most pleasant surprises.
And the music was great. Leave it to Cameron Crowe to get the music intertwined perfectly. Oh, and the scrapbook/map/music mix at the end was amazing. That's something I definitely wish I thought of. (Like when I read something I wish I'd written!)
Of course, I loved seeing places I know. I ever recognized Versailles in the actual Elizabethtown scenes.
