I Loved This Movie and No One Can Stop Me!
6 July 2004 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

There is a lot in this movie that is fun to watch, fresh, charming, original and could not have been made with any other cast.

Shelley Long won me over with this film. I was never a big Cheers fan but this made me wake up and take notice of her. She has been underutilized in Hollywood because she isn't outrageous...but that's everyone's loss.

Judith Ivey is another great talent with which Hollywood has no idea what to do. Her charm and kookiness in this film lets her shine.

The rest of the cast has a great deal of chemistry and is cast well for their broad characteristics.

Please don't listen to others - - there are hundreds of other movies that deserve to be reviled and vilified more than this. Sure it's predictable -- How many movies aren't???

The concept is enjoyable and I predict that some bimbo-star of the future will remake this and it will be fabulously popular. People will flock to see it just because of the bimbo and then finally THIS movie will have had its vindication and will be eulogized -- pardon the pun.

Just see it. It's fun.
