Very Cute!
3 January 2000 | by (Bowie, MD) – See all my reviews

I think that this was a really adorable movie. Perfect for one of those rainy, there's nothing to do days. I think that Fran Drescher was really lovable in this movie and Timothy Dalton, for once, seemed to take on a somewhat light-hearted role.
