It is odd how I got to this movie. I was buying some used movies at the video store. I got this one just because it was cheaper to buy 3 and did not at all expect to particularly enjoy it. By the title and box I expected it to be something almost porno. I LOVED it. It was one of those great surprises like going into a divey looking cafe and finding outstanding food and service. Wendy Crewson rocks. (Almost as good as her toy scene in Better Than Chocolate :-)) This character was just so charming, vulnerable, world weary and cynical at the same time. I adored her. Felt like I knew her from the first couple of paragraphs so to speak. Great job by actors and director. Kudos and I hope I find many more like it. When you expect a movie to be mediocre it usually is. Not this one.
