Is there room in Manhattan for a decent kid? Can a young woman see past a cad to true love? Paul, from rural upstate, comes to New York City for college. To keep his scholarship, he must study hard and do well. That makes him a loser to his partying roommates who connive to kick him out of their suite. He's assigned a room in an animal hospital. In class he meets Dora, a pretty coed who needs a job to pay for school, and who's the very young lover of their sarcastic and selfish lit professor. When Dora is slipped some drugs at a party, Paul nurses her back to health, and a friendship follows. For Paul, though, it's more than friendly feelings. Can they work things out for them to become a truly lucky couple? Written by
Paul's dorm is called Hunt's Hall. Audiences, especially older, might take this as an allusion to actor Huntz Hall, who was born in New York City (the setting of this film). Huntz played Horace DeBussy "Sach" Jones, a lively buffoon in the Bowery Boys film series, which followed his time as a Dead End Kid in Dead End and in the subsequent Dead End Kids series. It would be an appropriate connotation, in that the Chris, Adam and Noah characters are all buffoons as well as dead end kids (hedonistic young males with no real future). See more »

Well, you know how there are couples that stay together just because they feel like they can't do any better, or there are people who are sad and miserable and live alone? But then there's this microscopically teeny group of luck people who get to be with the person they're madly in love with.
Dora, you ever consider being in love and leaving out the "madly" part?
Well, what's the fun in that?

It's a teenage romantic comedy about a guy that goes to New York to go to college. He's from the countryside and he feels a bit out of context there, because people reject him for his simplicity. It's a simple story, quite realistic, and it's done in a funny and entertaining way (I especially enjoyed the scene when they do a teenage party inside the vet shop, with all the dogs and cats! It was funny!:). There're nice performances from Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari who do the main characters. The soundtrack is appropriated to a teen movie. It's nothing outstanding but it's a nice and entertaining film. I score it 6/10.
