Storyline

What happens when a man meets the woman of his dreams, but she wants to be "just friends"? The debut feature from the literally named Five Sisters Productions is a sweet and playful romantic comedy that boasts a culturally diverse cast. Meet Peter, an insurance analyst, who gets dumped by his girlfriend right when he's ready to pop the question. He becomes chummy with Rebecca, who's engaged to a guy who won't be coming to town for another month. Can they hang out and be just friends without things getting too complicated?

Decent, if not outstanding.
24 November 2001 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty fair relationship comedy/drama, even if the subject is the dreaded one of thirtysomething men and women who are still dating. You might find yourself saying early on, "No, it [the relationship] wouldn't go like that," but the characters are likable enough so that one can care about them, and overall the film is worthwhile.

It's a bit unusual for a film of this type which was directed (and written?) by a woman to have a male lead character. It's nice to see that character drawn without many of the male stereotypes that sometimes inhabit these movies. Still, the film has a strong female sensibility. It is mildly enjoyable if not outstanding.
