Excellent humor, perfect cast.
19 February 1999 | by (Idaho Falls, Idaho) – See all my reviews

Hamilton has always been a versatile actor who has been, for some reason, very much overlooked. This movie is, by definition, silly humor but the cast carries the story perfectly and anyone who needs a relaxing evening of an excellent love story will not be disappointed.
