Quite entertaining really
13 June 2001 | by (Namibia) – See all my reviews

I must admit that I actually enjoyed this movie. I enjoy romance stories, but they can be melodramatic at times. This one had enough "adventure and action" to keep it from being a total chick flick. I see that the film recommendation for this is "Crocodile Dundee II," and I can agree with that. Also, the pet kangaroo helped sell it to me :)
