A nice surprise
27 November 2005 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I'd heard about this movie on some chat show or something where Jenny McCarthy was talking about it, but had never heard anything other than that, however I caught it on TV today and was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

While I thought both leads were very good, and I love Paul Dooley, what I really liked about this movie is that I think it was made for an "adult" audience, meaning an audience sophisticated enough to accept people who are somewhat flawed as romantic leads, and who can appreciate a plot which is not written in crayon. This movie does not follow the traditional romantic comedy plot line and I found that very intriguing.

I'd definitely watch it again!
