Sweet
19 April 2002 | by (Palo Alto, California) – See all my reviews

It was funny, sweet, romantic, and a total chick flick. I personally liked it a lot. I thought the jokes were funny and that the story line was really sweet. Yes, it was a little cheesy but that's ok. and there was one scene that was too amateur material for a box office movie. It looked like it belonged on a daytime kids tv series, like clueless or something. but i won't give anything away. I'd still watch it again even with that scene in it. i luved it!
