a fun romantic comedy
3 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a romantic comedy that is actually entertaining and smart, not another kleenex, dull, cloned romantic comedy from Hollywood.

Rather going through the boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy loses all dignity to crawl back to the girl route, this film is pretty straightforward. Two lonely people, a guy who is on leave from the army and an aspiring screenwriter/wedding photographer female share an apartment together. They are brought together through contrived circumstances. He is trying to get back with his girlfriend (who previously lived in the apartment) and she is working up the guts to approach an attractive older man.

Ah, plot doesn't matter much, its the comedy here that counts. The two leads are gorgeous and have great chemistry together, sparring and inadvertently helping each other and of course, falling in love. Although again, the main situation is awfully contrived, it doesn't matter because the acting, setting and insuring situations all have a realistic edge to them.

The main actor plays the no-nonsense kind of guy who can actually cook and knows how to run his life. He's great when he's acting extremely peeved and horrified by the girl's awful living habits (like having no cups at all!) The actress really shines, she's better than Meg Ryan! She plays cutsy to a T yet also shows her lonliness, living basically day to day out of a meager salary. When was the last time you've seen a character in a romantic comedy who had money problems? C'mon, Bridget Jones, Kate & Leopold, they all show fabulously wealthy or successful people. The characters here are more sympathetic and real.

A great hoot. Subtitles do not matter.
