The dating world is treacherous and funny!
5 July 2003 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

David (Martin Short) and Kathy (Annette O'Toole) have made it pleasantly through their first two dates. Although they are both eagerly looking forward to the third one, each is a bit apprehensive. This is because the duo has been slow in revealing important facts about their lives. Kathy's secrets are she is a smoker and has a young daughter. David has just lost his job but has told Kathy he received a promotion. The first part of their date goes smoothly but things change when they find David's car has been stolen. The couple eventually ends up in David's apartment, leaving the viewer with a question. When will the secrets tumble out and will they make a difference?

This is a cute movie about the precarious nature of dating. Most couples start off superficially and David and Kathy are no exception. Yet, when the reality starts to sink in, will they still like each other and want to keep the relationship going? One hot topic is sex and it's awkwardness is covered here with accuracy and humor. The principal actors play their parts well and are very likeable. While not a runaway hit, Cross My Heart delivers a sweet and sly portrait of the dating world. Most viewers will have a good time.
