"Cute"
27 February 1999 | by (Oxnard, California) – See all my reviews

A "cute" story of the men in a small village fire department who have never seen a fire to fight. The monotony of their daily lives is interrupted by the appearance of a beautiful female college student who comes to visit her aunt.

"119" is a love story masquerading as a comedy. Unfortunately, the characters are not deep enough to pull this off. The opening sequence is hilarious, but it promises more than the film delivers.

Not a great film, but a cute film, worth watching for the wonderful soundtrack alone.
