Pleasantly Surprised.
19 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie really did surprise me, I expected it to be horrible. I watched it with my sister because she has a star crush on Mario Lopez and honestly expected to be bored out of my mind. Yet again, a t.v. movie managed to prove me wrong. It's not that I thought it was wonderful, it wasn't. It was predictable, stereotypical, and the writing was occasionally weak. But in general the actors managed to capture the emotional soul of the character, which in my opinion will make any movie worth watching. While it's not the best movie created by any stretch, it keeps your attention without requiring in depth thought, and if you just feel like sitting back and watching a movie for a good time, this is a good one to watch.
