After a few years of playing adult roles, this was the first of three high school roles in a row for Piper Perabo. She was cast as a teenager, although she was already in her mid-20's at the time. She'd already been a bartender in Coyote Ugly (2000) and a government agent in The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000), amongst other roles. See more »

Love is. If you understand that love just is you will understand L&D
This movie has almost nothing in common with its insiration "The Wives of Bath". The movie does have everything to do with single minded love that turns to obsession. Piper Perabo as Paulie plays the role of her career, far surpassing anything else she has appeared in to date (although in Coyote Ugly she is beguiling!)
Jessiaca Pare plays the part of Tory well, and in some scenes steals the show with beautifully played emotions and torn loyalties. I have yet to see Jessica reach the heights of emotion she portrayed in this movie.
The movie ends very weakly, and in my view drawing the curtain a few minutes earlier would have made L&D almost perfect. Well done Lea Pool on one of the movies that made same sex love acceptable and better understood. Shame that it did not have a wider audience at the time of its release.
