If kept in perspective, not bad
23 May 2002 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

Typical? Yes. Perdictable? Oh yeah. If you keep that in mind you may be able to enjoy the copious cuteness of this romance flick. Lopez and Matt M. are cute, the plot is cute, and the Italian guy is cute. A film made for those who want to see something they have seen before. If that's what you want you'll enjoy.
