A great film.
26 June 2001 | by (Aberdeen) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite films, I have seen this movie many times and each time I see I learn more about Stephen/Stephanie's character and I admire the extremes he will go to because of his love for Shelly. The sub-plot of the tennis tournament is and excellent light relief to the otherwise serious nature of the film. This film deals with strong issues, such as plagiarism, lying and downright cheating (in the tennis tournament). I would recommend this film to any of my friends, definately 10/10!
