Sappy Story
8 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a sappy story about a guy named Steve, (who is played by Neil Patrick Harris aka Doogie Howser, MD) with a bad mullet, who has a car accident, gets amnesia, becomes a teenage waif, confronts his demons, and returns to his family.

The schmultz in this movie, is enough to give one diabetes. But besides that. Sub-par acting, a go no where plot, poor dialogue, adds up to an experience that makes the viewer wish he could have amnesia, for the 90 minutes or so, this movie takes to play.

After viewing this movie, it's easy to see why Harris' career, tanked.
