Loved it!
24 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a fun movie! I was having a rough day at work and literally the whole debacle of the dinner date made my evening. I loved how the director was able to weave such intense emotional responses amongst a lot of good humor. And I'm huge Jason Alexander fan anyways so getting to see him in that light was so much fun. Also Rob Estes was super sad the whole time- I just wanted to squeeze him! Also I have some relatives in Queens and the stereotypes they were poking fun at were actually quite life like. Its dangerous territory that's for sure. Seriously though I'd certainly recommend it for a date night- the chemistry between the characters was great.
