Light comedy, quirky, and I now appreciate Jenny!
29 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never really cared for Jenny McCarthy before seeing this movie. I am not a fan of gross humor or dysfunction, and those are the types of roles I had seen her in before this movie. She does a nice job here. It actually was a while before I realized it was her in the female lead role, as it was so different from what I had seen her in before. Hey, who knew she could act? She and the male lead are both very believable in their roles and while this is not Shakespeare, I thought it was well done. Enough so, that after renting it, I bought the cheapest "like new" copy I could find on half.com so I can watch it again when the mood strikes me. Yeah, yeah, both lead characters are a bit dysfunctional, but they get better by the end of the movie.
