Goofs

When Max is having his breakfast from a bowl at the beginning of the movie, the camera is close and the bowl is high, the camera pans out and the bowl is suddenly low, yet when the camera does a close up again, the bowl is high again. He didn't have time to put it back up or get it to the right height. See more »

A Fun Film for the Female Population of the Planet!
12 October 2004 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Tess and Emily Tyler (Olsen twins) live with their widowed father, Maxwell (Tom Amandes) in Venice, California. Maxwell is a sculptor who has thrown himself into his work after his wife's death. Naturally, the girls want to see their father in a happier state of mind. At a friend's suggestion, Tess and Emily repaint a neighborhood billboard with their father's vital information. Women respond! While dad is starting to date, the twins are also going to diving meets. Will Dad find true love, even as the Tyler girls are winning diving competitions?

This adorable movie is certain to win the hearts of females, young and old. Amandes does wonderfully in his search for a mate, even when it requires him to go on a string of bizarre and funny dates. Mary-Kate and Ashley are charming and they don't miss a beat of the humorous script. No, it's not Shakespeare. But even Will himself might call this a merry romp. Recommended for those who are tickled to find a romantic, upbeat, family-friendly movie.
