Cute piece of fluff
4 October 2001 | by (Orangevale, California USA) – See all my reviews

Mystery Romantic Comedy Drama A cute little piece of fluff worth viewing when you just want a quiet, pleasant diversion for the evening. A young man is falsely accused of killing another at a party and with the help of a young woman flees to give himself time to think and the two end up falling for each other while hopping trains and forcibly renting a car to elude the pursuing police. Not bad at all! 2 out of 4 stars
