Jennifer and Ryan are students at UC Berkeley, acquaintances off and on since early adolescence. She's quick, witty, ironic, literary, and independent; he's deliberate, literal, serious, studying structural engineering, always working on a plan. They take walks, they console each other over break-ups, he shares his plans. She's headed for Italy after graduation. Then, to their equal surprise, they spend a night together. Her response is to skitter away from continued intimacy and want to stay friends; he's hurt by her response, so he withdraws. Can it all get sorted out before she leaves town? Written by

This movie is an interesting piece of filmwork. The characters are completely believable, the story is effective and funny, and the actors pull it off with such distinction, I have new faith in Prinze's ability to act. Many say these are the only roles he's good in - so what? If this type of character is what he does best, let him stick to it. Claire Forlani is a new face, but bright and powerful, with the kind of new charm we first got from Hewitt or Gellar. This movie is a romance, so it may not appeal to everyone, but altogether, it is a decent movie, recommended for about 10 and up.
