Great movie....will bring a smile to your face
13 February 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Despite what some reviews said...I liked this movie. It seemed more real than most of the genre. I must admit the end seemed to take a while and the suspense was killing me...but then I realised that in real life it would have been just like it was in the movie, given the circumstances.

Anabeth was great as the "best friend"...she has such a lovely smile that every scene she was in was lit up as a result. The main guy was good too...and he perfected the sad, confused look.

One thing which I thought was cute was the portrayal of friendship in the movie. It was lovely to watch. If only we all had friends like that in real life.

All in all, I thought it was a nice movie. I started watching it in an OK mood and by the end of it I was smiling and feeling much much better. Isn't that what movies are meant to do for us?
