Storyline

What do animals, allergies and a bet have in common? A commitment-phobic woman named Lisa Harris. Lisa may hold the record for most failed short-term relationships in modern history. It's not that she doesn't want to find her true love, it's just that she doesn't seem to know what true love means. It's with the idea of helping Lisa that her mom, Gwen bets her she won't be able to stay with her current boyfriend, Simon through Thanksgiving, a record three weeks away. From the moment Lisa accepts the challenge, her life changes. No sooner has Lisa made the bet than Simon is unexpectedly called away on business. Determined not to lose, Lisa lets her roommate Amy talk her into substituting another man for Simon a handsome carpenter named Mike. But life's not so simple... not only does Lisa have to contend with Mike's allergy to her pet rabbit but with the unexpected return of Mike's beautiful but manipulative ex-girlfriend George. While George poses a threat, it soon becomes clear to Lisa... Written by Anonymous

Lovely little afternoon movie.
13 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Boy meets girl, girl rejects boy on insignificant premiss. Girl meets new boy and things get in the way. Girl and boy flounce about getting closer moving apart for the majority of the film with ex-girlfriends and stuff getting in the way, but not too much to be annoying. Then the finale occurs to round things up. Will he go? Will he even want the girl if he stays?

This is actually a good film, with enough little secondary characters providing amusement. Explanatory information is included in a subtle manner not degrading the film.

I have to say the background score was nothing special, rather similar to many productions of this genre. A couple of songs jazz it up at appropriate moments.

All in all I enjoyed the 84 minutes, but then again, I like watching movies. This one is quite good.
