A modest but charming romantic comedy
23 March 2000 | by (Yamhill County, Oregon) – See all my reviews

This film doesn't try and break any new ground: It just wants to make a little romantic comedy with some likeable main characters, some amusing supporting roles and a few good laughs. I think it's charming. A little flimsy, but sweet. Worth a watch when it turns up again on cable.
