Where are all the Spanish people?
16 June 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

For Arizona, you sure got a lot of white (northern) people walking around this desert community. The cowboy hats add to the image that it is a south western community, but then again, the movie lacks any soul of the setting. Still, this is a great, forgotten 80's romantic comedy. Both Roberts and Arquette are a delight to watch. Both are very young and are in the prime of their careers. The movie has its moments of comedy and its moments of seriousness. Overall, the movie deals with the issue of growing up, falling in and out of love, and trying to find the one that is right for you. The movie tries to hit on suicide and depression but it fails. It takes a back seat to what the audience wants to see, comedy. Overall, the story ends happy and cheerful.
