Quite nice
15 December 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This was the midday movie today and I saw Patrick Dempsey's name and I thought "Oh no! Not another 80s teen flick starring Patrick Dempsey!" Then I saw Brad Pitt in the opening scenes and I thought I'd stick around. I'm glad I did because it was quite a sweet movie and well worth a look. Patrick was great, Slater was a bit over the top but that was what the character called for. All in all it was a nice movie that had a lot to say about love and relationships. It falters a little towards the end but overall I really liked it and might even consider seeing it again.
