great movie
18 August 2001 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

great movie for dreamers out to get the person of their dreams. Rob is a real hunk and sex-pot who can turn any girl on, and make her want to believe that she can get whoever she wants. A real dream-come-true movie with a great ending that makes you feel great, and will give you the courage to pursue your dream (or dream-person).
