Good romance, if you like that sorta thing!
19 May 1999 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

Okay, so I'm not a big fan of romance movies. I did, however, like the movie okay. It is a bit slow to start, but after a while, it picks up the pace. For the hopeless romantic, it will be an enjoyable movie. For those that like action and adventure, this is not the movie for you! The characters are interesting, and I did find myself sympathizing with them. It made for an interesting motivational study. Not the best movie ever made, but good.
