AMAZING!

I love this movie. I discovered it many years ago and was lucky enough to find it on an on line auction. It is a "chick flick" and leaves me crying everytime. WHen she says "Matthew" with her French accent me and my friends just want to scream into the television. I recommend it to anyone -- if you can find it.
