Sophomore Al Connelly meets the girl of his dreams, freshman Imogen, and true love abounds. The two engage on a whirlwind courtship--they pick a song, eat a cake together, even make love.

Great Romantic Comedy
11 June 2002 | by (Blackpool, England) – See all my reviews

I'm not usually a fan of romantic comedies, but Down To You really is a great movie. It's funny, entertaining and has some very touching, romantic moments without being overly sentimental or chliched. Freddie Prinze Jr and Julia Stiles put in great performances, and they're backed up by a strong supporting cast of varied and original characters. The plot explores the 'tingles' of first love in a refreshingly mature and honest manner, without being trivial and stupid like some teen movies. A fantastic flick to watch on a girlie night in.
