Real-life actor siblings Joyce Van Patten and Dick Van Patten were romantically paired in the script (even though they were unrelated within confines of plot), one of few (if only) times a brother/sister acting duo were ever cast as onscreen paramours. One scene even shows them briefly necking. See more »

So-so comedy with some great drama
16 September 1999 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I had absolutely NO IDEA as to what to expect from this film, but I ended up pleasantly surprised. Much of the film is uneven, to be sure, but several fun moments and a strong performance from Kristoffer Tabori kept me interested. Then, towards the end, the film suddenly made a sharp turn towards drama, and yet it did not seem out of place. In fact, it was most certainly a memorable finale, as well as the best part of the movie. I suppose this film did get a little too silly at times, but the hit-and-miss comedy and superb dramatic conclusion make it well worth your time.
