Very funny movie!
11 July 2002 | by (Indianapolis, IN) – See all my reviews

On first blush, you think this is a "chick flick". But the story is actually told from John Newcombe's character so you get the funny nuances that come only from the male's point of view. My wife and I loved it! Being from the midwest, I can relate to the "hillbilly" humor when they visit Grass Creek, Indiana.
