A very refreshing romantic comedy
6 June 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Saw this in preview at the Seattle Film Festival, and was wowed by Parker and Donovan -- also found the script immensely smarter and funnier than most of what passes for romantic comedy these days. This movie deserves a wide audience, I hope it gets a chance to find it.
