Totally underrated
19 March 2004 | by (Visby, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie is a gem! Maybe not for everyone but still a gift for everyone who take the time to understand it. Before I saw the movie I saw one comment saying it was the bastard child between What Women Want and Sex in the City and I can understand that (it was meant negative) for the first twenty minutes. Whoever said that probably stopped wathcing after that conclusion because this movie is so much more. The dialogue is excellent the script is great but I get a feeling that maybe it isn't for everyone to connect with.

I however thought this was a truly great movie. The leading charachter, played by Mark Feuerstein (never heard about him before), talkt right to me! Hell I've been this man!

It's seldom I've seen such good writing describing the relationships between the sexes without falling into an eager to please the audience witht easy conclusions.

After watching this I got a real eager to meet the writer Christopher Kublan because he has obviously been through the same things I'm been through. It is so easy to spend you're life making it look good to other people (especially woman) that you forget about yourself and what you want. And the thing that makes you realize that is often the one you wanna love but whom detests you of what you have become of that.

This is a great movie, to put it down in any ways is awful but the photoghraphy is beyond standard and they could have worked some more on the endingt. Anyway I'll give this a 9/10 at least!
