Charming, cute but not too cute
28 April 2000 | by (Northern NJ) – See all my reviews

A great romantic comedy, better than Sliding Doors and Twice Upon A Yesterday!!! Well directed, nicely acted, and real. This isn't a hollywood film that is boring and clashed and fake, it's honest and often hilarous. The only one problem is Regal Cinema's projector lighting, it seemed too dark (the Sony Pictures Classics logo was very dark blue, not sky blue) anyway this film is lots of fun!
