When Connie sits down to a meal of soup eaten according to proper etiquette, the bowls of soup are tilted AWAY from the diners.

So Ricky Lake is not the world's greatest actress, but she does well enough. The romance is reasonably believable. The story is friendly. And you get to watch Brendan Fraser for a long while - who is actually even more dishy as Hugh than as Bill, so do pay attention during the act in the train.
I watched it twice on television. I could easily bear watching it a third time. Believe me- that's high praise.
