Cute romantic comedy
9 September 2000 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This movie isn't earth shattering, or life altering, but it's entertaining. Joey Slotnick plays well as an engaged writer still attracted to his ex-girlfriend. There are some cute little jokes here and there, and some promising moments as far as the director goes. All in all it's a good movie to watch on HBO (where it is shown every now and again) and pulls off being funny and romantic at the same time (something rarely done in "romantic comedies" which normally choose one or the other.) I would recommend checking it out if you have a chance, you won't feel like you wasted and hour and a half.
