Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The scene featuring David Spade was filmed in Toronto's first specialty video store Revue Video. Since the store specializes in films (Foreign Language and Classics) other than the ones feature in the scene, the whole look of the store had to be changed. See more »

Goofs

Though they were supposedly born during the course of Paul and Dora's outing, the kittens they find when they return to the animal hospital are clearly at least six weeks old. They have long hair, their eyes are open, and they are able to move around very well on their own. True newborn kittens are basically helpless. See more »

I really enjoyed this film
4 June 2007 | by (Merseyside, UK) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film! Its a real and genuine feel good movie which will undoubtedly charm you. Many films you watch once and never watch again, but for me i can watch this film many times and still get that same fuzzy feeling from when i first watched it.

The acting is pretty good, I think pairing Mena Suvari and Jason Briggs was perfect as they'd already worked together in American Pie. The film is also more plot to it than most teen-comedy movies. It may not be as funny as the likes of American Pie, But it has many of its own qualities. Jason Briggs does really well and you end up really liking his Character, He does a really good job at playing Mr Nice and really charming you.

Give this film a watch. You never know, you might just agree with me
