Always A Cute Movie
13 May 2000 | by (Weston, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie many times and it is a cute movie to sit through every time. It is not so much funny but it is the typical crush story only with a twist. Chad Lowe plays Stephen who is infatuated with a tennis player named Shelly(played by Gail O'Grady). In order to get closer to her without "busting" as Stephen says he turns himself into a girl hoping to win her over that way. I think this is one of O'Grady's best performances but her best was in NYPD Blue I believe. Chad Lowe is is adorable in this off beat movie about how far a guy will go just for love.
