One of my favs
14 April 2001 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I love the two leads of the movie, Ann Jillian and Tim Matheson. They have fun with their roles, and together they have chemistry as well. It is a romantic movie, half set in Rome, which in my opinion is the most romantic city in the world. This may be a TV movie but it's an exceptional one. Wish I could get it on VHS or DVD.
