Best movie seen for a long time
8 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a few years back on TV,I recorded it so I will always have a copy. I passed it around to all my friends and they have worn it out. It is a shame that the movie is only available on (can't find it anywhere else). It is a perfect chick flick. Boy meets girl, girl is a rich kid but learns that there is more to life than money. Everyone can relate to this movie, getting your parents to give you more freedom and having a little brother! I think the wedding scene is the best, falling flat into the cake! Also the song 'Paint the Sky' at the end by Wild Orchid, fantastic song to finish the movie with. Fantastic movie, would recommend it to anyone, it's the perfect Saturday night slumber party movie.
