Quirky romantic comedy
16 February 1999 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie during a recent trip to London as Don't Go Breaking My Heart. I was attracted to it because of my divine love of the TV series ER. But I found it to be a fun, slightly offbeat comedy about a rather interesting love triangle. It was one of those movies where the underdog wins, with a cute love story mixed in with triumph of the human spirit. Despite a few holes in the plot, I loved it.
