Good movie, characters annoying though
11 April 2001 | by (BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie today, and it's one of the few movies that I can sit down and enjoy while actually think about. This is not a big budget movie although there are some big names in it.

One warning -- Sean Astin is really annoying in this. Which proves to me he played his part well. But I think the writers did too good of a job making him annoying. Matt Lillard is great in this movie, I really feel he will break out soon. You can tell a lot of his humor in this film is improv, it's great. Shannon Elizabeth is hot in this movie, but there is a seen where she takes it all off, which I really feel took away from the whole movie.

The story line is that Sean Astin and Matt Lillard are best friends who have philosophies on everything and vow to each other not to let love stand in the way of life. The only problem is that that their lives are standing in their way of finding love.

This is a movie I recommend to anybody who doesn't need a lot of action, or doesn't need humor to be spelled out to them.

Overall I rate this movie very high, it was enjoyable, but Astin analyzing everything to death made this movie good and not great.
