Swwet and Innocent
12 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a nice movie. Simple and straightforward. It's about first love. Romance and hope for something more. Its a boys first experience with a girl who is a bit more worldly. It has some sexual scenes, but these are done well. It is not insulting nor nasty in any way. It is a non toxic film and I truly enjoyed it. I might be in the minority, but I am a sucker for movies like this I have seen it a number of times and I think I will eventually purchase it on DVD to have. If you enjoy nice films that make you think or cry or make you wax nostalgic, I think you will enjoy this one. A sweet guy meets a girl who is involved with an older gentleman. She is torn between the young guy who has yet to find himself and the older well established man who is seemingly well to do.These two people meet, have the start of what seems to be a beautiful relationship which eventually goes awry. It is touching and bittersweet. I adored the character played by a very young William Katt ( Greatest American hero Elgin is just so enamored of his new lady love (played by Susan Dey of the Partridge family), but she has secrets. I loved the song in the film which I cant remember.

It is the perfect chick flick. A super movie to see on Valentines day or girls movie night and yes it will bore your boyfriend or husband to death, girls, you will love it and don't forget the tissues. I cry at the drop of a hat, but this one broke my heart.
