In the top 10,000 out of a zillion.
10 March 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Take a couple of young adults who are destined to fall in love, mix in sundry family and friends, create lots of humorous situations so everyone can talk about their views on love, sex, commitment, etc....and you've got another of a zillion formula romantic comedies. "Dinner and Driving" is a tad fresher, a tad more humorous, and a tad more creative than the average. Worth a watch for the bored channel surfer.
