Suitable for teenie-boppers, or those rainy 'blob out' days where your expectations are not high.
This romantic comedy has a simple, predictable story and a general innocuous presentation. While it is not an awful flick, don't expect it to rank alongside box office hits. The main problem lies with a bad script consisting of numerous hackneyed lines. Another big detraction is the mis-casting of the main character ('Runner') played by Kirk Cameron. This young man simply is too unlikely to be a match for 'Robyn', played by Chelsea Noble. Cameron is likeable and performs well, but his boyishness looks foolish next to Nobles mature sexuality.
But hey, wait! This is merely a made-for-TV movie that never pretends to be anything other than a light diversion for those who are young and undiscerning. So in this sense it is fine. So grab the Coke and popcorn and if the phone rings go ahead and answer it because you won't miss much unless you love simple fantasies or the eye candy provided by Noble.
