This is the best movie I could ever dream of watching-thanks to James Marsden
16 April 2002 | by (Redondo Beach, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the most beautiful movie I could ever dream of watching. I watch it 40 times and still love to watch it. It is about a teenager Jake (James Marsden) who is violent against everybody and Zoe (Kellie Martin) who suffers mood swing and trusts nobody. They are sent to a psychiatric institution. Their initial antagonism soon develop into love. They eventually find the cure in their true love to each other. This is another outstanding performance by James Marsden who stars in many great movies/shows such as: Ally McBeal, Sugar and Spice, X-Men, Gossip, Disturbing Behavior, Public Enemies, Gone in a Heartbeat, Second Noah, Boogies Dinner … And look forward for the release of Interstate 60 in Fall 2002 and X-Men 2 in May 2003. James Marsden's God like good looks are heart stopping and his extraordinary acting talent is heart touching. The music throughout the film is wonderful. This TV movie is so much better than so many high budget event movies. They should have made this a feature film. I wish and wish they would have sequels or TV series for this wonderful movie. I wish they would make vhs and dvd for this movie.
