A dark and unfunny flick
13 March 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Two talented actors - working with a pitiful script. Some nice shots of renovated Brooklyn brownstones (or is that the back lot in Hollywood?) Actually, I had a similar upstairs neighbor when I lived in a Brooklyn brownstone years ago. This lady must be related. She evoked absolutely NO sympathy - and made the entire attempt slightly creepy.

The couple had *zero* chemistry and I'm surprised I watched it to the bitter end. Must have been a slow TV night. The comic turn at the end was somewhat redeeming and provided a wry twist to an otherwise forgettable movie. I am glad I have found one nice thing to say about it. I am one of the few people in my circle who thinks Drew Barrymore has talent. I hate to see her in this drek.
