Granted, this movie is far from a masterpiece but it's not half as bad as the previous reviewers say. I will admit that it's a bit slow and a bit too "talky" (I doubt that's even a real word) but it is a cute romantic comedy. If we're going to judge movies based purely on the stiffness of it or on the lackluster job the director did, we can at least appreciate the writing and the performance of the actors. There are other so called romantic comedies that are horrible and painful to watch and are far more offensive to the eyes and the mind than this one. Yet those films don't get attacked as harshly or mercilessly as this one. For Instance the travesty which we know as "Kate and Leopold" or the ultimate road apple "Giggli". Those were boring and down right atrocious films and nowhere near as tolerable as "Don't Do It". Not to say that `Don't Do It' is a diamond or anything, but I guarantee no one will contemplate suicide as a form of punishment for seeing this film as opposed to `Giggli'. Eugene Hess has a long way to go as a Director but I see what he was trying to do and I totally enjoyed the film and I give him credit for his first attempt. In my opinion the criminals that made "Giggli" and the rocket scientist that decided to hire Satan (a.k.a. Jennifer Lopez) and his concubine (a.k.a. Ben Affleck b.k.a. "The White Mario Van Peebles") should be banned from Hollywood for life. They are the ones who should be the targets of the witty insults and harsh words that "Don't Do It" has been subjected to. For they owe me a huge chunk of my life that was wasted on that horrible film `Giggli'. For all its short comings `Don't Do It' serves its purpose as a date movie for a blockbuster night and it might even help set the mood for the post date activities. `Giggli' on the other hand, serves more as a deterrent for men to never ever engage in `turkey time'.
