Storyline

A pastry boy and the son of a hair-piece mogul become involved in an arson scandal. Sergio is offered a bribe in exchange for taking the blame for the fire that destroys his workplace. Garet, the real arsonist, is apalled that someone else would try to take credit for his act of love. Before long, Sergio and Garet become entangled in a zany love-quadrangle involving Hattie and Stephanie. Written by Brian Whiting <bwhiting@holly.colostate.edu>

Stephanie Potts: [Walks up to Garet sulking in a train station] Ahem.
Garet: Stephanie?
[She punches him, knocking him off his seat]
Garet: Wha-? Wha-? What was that for?
Stephanie Potts: I am tired of waiting for you. Now, whether you know it or not, we are in love with each other.
Garet: You're in love with me?
Stephanie Potts: Is there an echo in here? Yes, I am in love with you. And it's an aching, torturous love, which wrenches the lower extremities. Now, get up before I throw you onto the tracks.

An awesome romantic fairy tale!
16 October 2002 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This movie is meant to be a bit of fluff, not to be taken too seriously. But it more than adequately describes the emotions and crazy things done in the name of love. No, it won't win an academy award, but it wasn't meant to. If you want a great piece of entertainment that is perfect for a nice quiet date, that is sure to bring a smile to your face and a great feeling to your heart, I strongly recommend this movie!
