frustratingly beautiful!, 9 October 1999
Author: Laurie-10

okay, i'll admit i only rented this movie because i have a fascination with giovanni ribisi, but i ended up liking it more than i expected. I NEVER WANT TO BE 20 AN DATING NOW!!! this movie was all so real and funny and smart and, i thought, sad. the cast is superb and the characters are realistic: the "loose" friend, the nerdy brother, the jerk boyfriend. the list is endless! 9/10, HIGHLY recommended!
