This is the greatest film of 1998
19 September 1998 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have just returned from the Toronto Film Festival, breathless not only from laughing at the film, but also because I ran - literally ran - from the theatre to the nearest Internet Cafe so that I might register my immense pleasure with this film. Every aspect of this movie blows me away. Take every cheesy romantic comedy you've seen, every lame line you've seen delivered by a plastic Romeo to his inflatable Juliet, and throw them away. Dean Paras has managed to breathe new life into the rotting corpse that WAS American (or Canadian) dramedy. The movie is superb, funny, sad, real, real, real. Go see this with the person you intend to marry, and present the ring afterwards. She may be so greatful that you made her watch it, she'll say yes.
