Sweet!



Neve Campbell doesn't get any sweeter than this. You've seen her as a bitchy Party of Five chic and a Jamie Lee Curtis style victim but this is where she's at her best...quirky, cute, believable and fun. I think this is what Neve is like in real life! She's perfect for adorably eecentric Amy. Matthew Perry (though not looking his best) is charming and fun and at times steals the show!!! Oliver Platt isn't too bad either. The basic story is Perry and Platt are two partners in business, they're competeing with another set of partners. Platt is gay, Perry isn't. The story gets reversed to where the bosss thinks Perry is gay so he asks him to watch out for Amy with whom he's having an affair. End of Story. Did you get that? Within the first five minutes you know whats gonna happen but its a sweet, big hearted little film that makes you want somebody to cuddle up with :) A must see for Neve fans
