Really cute movie!!
7 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Why does everyone slam this movie?????I liked it!! What were the critics expecting? Oscar worthy stuff?? I mean, obviously it's not. But that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable. That's one reason why I hate critics. They're mean. I only watched this movie because of Elijah Wood (I love him!!), and I wasn't expecting it to be that good, but I was surprised!! In a good way. So if you want to see this movie, don't listen to the critics!!! Use your own judgement, people. That's all.

Luv, Farfalla Dolce

By the way, about the swearing and stuff in the movie, is it reall that bad? I mean, as if kids who watch the movie don't use them already. Seriously people, just think about it!! It was a cute movie, let's leave it at that.
