Like an old friend, a reliably warm romance
6 March 2003 | by (Port Orange, Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that I've watched at intervals over the last 20 years, always with a smile. Just today I had three women friends over for coffee and introduced it to them... and all three laughed, smiled and had a good time! What more could you ask of a romantic movie than that?
