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>

Garet: Stephanie?
[She punches him, knocking him off his seat]

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.

best love story for guys ever
9 July 2007 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

This is the best not-chick-flick-love-story ever made... This is definitely a movie for guys to enjoy and get emotional... YEAH, GUYS, not emos, not gaymen... STRAIGHT GUYS. It is funny as it is romantic, IN A GUY'S WAY TO SEE LOVE. It is such a good movie, I registered only to rate it. Everyone should see this movie, it's an intelligent plot, the sets are simple, the actors really showed their best and you're gonna like it.

Suggestion for GUYS: Wanna get some profit??? WATCH THIS MOVIE WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND. Suggestion for GIRLS: Wanna see your boyfriend all emotional, laughing and giving you hugs every 10 minutes??? MAKE HIM WATCH IT WITH YOU, he's gonna love it.
