Top knotch romantic movie...
9 October 2001 | by (Sherwood Park, Alberta) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie over the weekend as a refreshment from seeing it as a late movie one Saturday and I still enjoy it. It is quite a charming little romance comedy about Doug Ireland, a concierge who is absorbed in his work, but can take time out for the attractive but difficult Andy(Gabrielle Anwar). He has big plans for himself, and calls on the help of a corrupt businessman for support. Fox is wonderful in this film, playing his most proficient kind of character- the hopeless romantic. The supporting cast is very funny and enjoyable, especially Udo Kier, the uptight manager with a slight hatred for overdoers. This is a very good romantic movie, the kind that is best for a date or an evening out.
