Quotes

Jill: You know, I used to live with somebody back when I was in college.
Jill Martin: Did you like it?
Jill: You know, I think I would've liked it better if we actually, uh, gotten along.
Jill Martin: You know, I think the hardest thing about relationships with men is that they always want to be the ones in control. The minute a woman asserts herself and starts doing things that she wants to do, all that sweetheart business goes right out the window.

oh please make it stop....
27 June 1999 | by (ontario, canada) – See all my reviews

Awful, Awful, Awful!! That's what kept repeating over and over in my head as I watched this trash. Horrible camera shots, the music was boring, the plot gave me a "been there, done that" feel, as it wasn't original in the least, and the acting made me think they just picked people off of the sidewalk and asked if they wanted to be in a film. This movie's quality in acting, wardrobe, music, plot, and everything else gives the viewer the feeling of a low-budget porno. I give it a -1/10 for wasting an hour and a half of my time.
