Quotes

Julia: You used me. You took the Mexico Ditch! You never even heard of it before!
Kevin: Of course. I didn't realize you had a copyright on a ditch. What other forces of nature are yours?
Julia: I will keep this simple. I. Me. This person in front of you. I do not. Not. The international symbol for "no". I do not want you near me again!
Kevin: Hey. Wait, wait, wait. Wait a minute. So are we still on for midnight?

Cute silly movie
7 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

When now a days the only news one hears are tragic and when going to the movies is basically to see violence and sex, it is always refreshing to see a cute silly movie that allows you to smile and spend an hour and a half without suffering through its plot. This movie, in my opinion, carries a little bit of several styles of comedy: situations that make it funny and the use of lines where you have to interpret what they are saying in order for them to make sense and allow you to smile. This movie is very local, in the sense that you have to be a native English speaking person to really understand many of the intended meanings of the dialogues. Any way it is a well spent 90 minutes of your time to relax a little and follow it through with interest. For Spanish speaking viewers, the background song: NO SE TU makes it very worthwhile to watch/hear.
