Libby: Well, you know, make a few calls. Made a list of all her favorite things. You know, list of her mates and stuff. She liked bloody marys.
Fergus: Oh, that'll help.
Libby: Roller skating.
Fergus: This is eight years ago, right?

Craig Ferguson Fan, but his presence is not enough to help this movie
3 March 2003 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie looking for a romantic comedy and knowing nothing about it other than it starred Craig Ferguson. I am a big fan of his, but this movie was not one that he should be proud to put on his resume! As another reviewer pointed out, there are too many subplots and not enough time to get into any of them. It was ninety minutes of drivel, truth be told. The only part that I enjoyed (which did not belong in the film one iota) was when Craig Ferguson sang in a nightclub accompanied by a band. He sounded great! While no single actor did a bad job, the material they had to work with was just subpar. Nothing fresh was done in the area of romantic comedies and the whole thing was just dull. Don't get this one! Get "Saving Grace" instead! Or "Greenfingers". Or "The Mean Machine". All 3 are in the new release section of your video store and are British movies that are much better.
