Storyline

Three very different dating couples end up in the same late Chinese restaurant where a seer gives each diner a personalized fortune. A teen geek is dining with a blond cheerleader, who is there only to make her boy friend jealous. Her independent-minded mother is also there with her long-time beau, who is trying to gather his nerve to propose. The geek's older sister is also there with a DJ whom she met at a book club. All of the individuals are shown to have flaws and assets, which makes for a well-rounded story and good insights into relation's expectations of males and females today.

Just a cute show
7 May 2002 | by (Fruit Heights, UT) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie the other night and I just thought it was a cute show. I didn't really have any high expectations, in fact, I was worried that it would seem like a play with all the scenes actually in the restaurant. Fortunately this was not the case. The three couples were likable and there were some very funny parts. I was please with the way it ended. It wasn't my favorite movie of all time, but it was good enough to enjoy watching.
