A Very Colorful, Cheery, And Bubbly Romantic Comedy
4 July 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I knew that I wasn't going to be disappointed in this movie! I liked it, but it's not the best. The characters have great humour and a bit of strange taste to them. One is obsessed by Houdini, the other designs self-defense bras, and then there is the mystery man from England, Monte. I loved the strange characteristics to Lucy, Vivian, and Monte, and if Dali's were a real restaurant, I would LOVE to go there for dinner! I loved the setting of Dali's and the wardrobe the waiters, waitresses, and bartenders are required to wear. There is a lot of strange high fashion in this film! Rosanna Arquette's look is totally early 90's with the bright Irish red hair and the fire engine red lipstick shade!

This movie's very colorful and very cheery! I enjoyed watching this film, and wouldn't it be a wonder just to star in this film? It was a great movie, but I will admitt, I thought the plot a bit silly. Yet that's what makes this movie good! :o)
