Goofs

When Crawl and Rebecca first meet, he videotapes her from the door to her dorm room. In the following shot, we see a black-and-white shot from the point of view of his camera. Not only does it come from a significantly different location in the room, but also, Rebecca is looking well offscreen when she should be looking directly into the camera. See more »

Quotes

Crawl: Where are you from?
Becca: South Dakota
Crawl: Fresh off the farm, oh my God, I can't believe it. Right across the hallway. Hallelujah. So you're inbred?
Becca: What?
Crawl: You know, where your mom's your dad, and your dad's your brother.

cute, fun movie
16 January 2001 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect much when I decided to watch this movie, so I was surprised to find myself thoroughly enjoying it. A couple of scenes had me laughing almost uncontrollably. The characters were engaging (no pun intended); however, the story is predictable. The fun of it comes from watching Crawl (Shore's character), a ditzy-yet-wise California dude a country college girl brings home for Thanksgiving, trying in his awkward (yet endearing) way to fit in to their lifestyle. I was also surprised that in all this there was a message. If you have a chance, see this movie!
