Definitely Underrated
6 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a lot better than it is given credit for. Yes, I tend to be partial toward William Petersen's works, but this movie had an interesting story line and unexpected twists.

It begins with two middle-aged men that are not happy with their current lives. A business trip to the Philipines gives them a taste of what they are missing and what they wish they could have. After a few rushed decisions and what they think is a good idea, they decide to stay in the Philipines in an attempt to create their own paradise. When they fall for the same woman, however, problems will arise and they will be pulled back into reality.

If you're looking for a romantic movie with a "happily ever after" ending, this isn't the one for you. If you like the angst-drama type that resembles the real world, you should definitely see this movie.
