Excellent analysis of young romance
2 January 2000 | by (Oak Park, IL) – See all my reviews

I'd like to compliment the writer and director John Fisher for the effort he put into this movie. I'm not judging this movie by industry standards but by effort. It's obvious it's a low budget movie, so I won't and can't judge it on the same level as a major production. But he does create believable characters, situations and conversations that everyday people can relate to.

Perry and Stephanie's relationship can be considered the typical young person's romance- trying to find that perfect match, yet not quite sure how to accomplish it. When Perry needed counseling regarding his relationship with Stephanie, Joseph was Perry's rational conscience, while D'Angelo was Perry's carnal conscience. John Fisher creates an interactive atmosphere with his audience- combined with the dialogue- that will have you laughing and speaking back to the characters or situations and asking yourself, "Is that me?!?" I would recommend this movie to anyone that has been involved in a relationship- whether going steady,engaged or married. I give it a nine. It's a relevant and intelligent comedy.
