Watchable 90's dating flick
10 December 2003 | by (Wrexham, North Wales) – See all my reviews

Good cast - good effort. This drama chronicles the perils of dating in the 90's, and it does it with average results.

The characters are good, and the story is watchable but suffers from a slow pace at times and its sometimes a little too depressing.

Marissa Ribisi - (Dazed and Confused) - who also co wrote the script, and her real life brother Giovanni (Gone in 60 seconds) give the best performances.

All in all, passes the time, although I can't help but think that in a few months I probably wont remember anything about it - still its worth the £1 I bought it for!!
