Nice slice-of-life with attractive stars
16 October 1999 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

Film gets ripped by most, but I like it. Rob Lowe & Demi Moore find each other and enter on-again, off-again relationship. Demi has never looked better, and Jim Belushi is outstanding as Lowe's well-meaning but crude best friend. More realistic about relationships than most Hollywood productions.
