Sometimes a film just doesn't work.
2 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is one of those cases. Clearly made by beginning film makers, THE DEFINITE MAYBE is a failed attempt at comedy and film making in general. Nary a laugh in the entire film, and barely a single recognizable character. Ineptly shot, poorly acted, and far too long, this is not a good way to spend an evening..
