Trivia:
After the lead and co-star pulled out of the film, Barbara Sicuranza suggested her husband Chris Stein could help. Stein is a member of Blondie and offered the role of Sherry to Debbie Harry.

HOW SWEET IT IS, 21 August 2002
Author: george.schmidt (gpschmidt67@gmail.com) from fairview, nj

THE SWEET LIFE (2002) *** James Lorinz, Barbara Sicuranza, Robert Mobley, Joan Jett. Very funny romantic comedy with 'nice guy' Lorinz (sardonically apt) attempting to find true love in the unlikely form of his ladies' man brother's latest fling (sexy Amazon Sicruanza), a rough-around-the-edges barmaid with a quick tongue and a heart of gold. Hilarious dialogue and frequently amusing moments of pitfalls Lorinz faces on a daily basis and the frustration of Sicuranza wanting something better in her life blends well as does Mobley as the borderline misogynistic elder brother. Jett gives an unforgettably comic turn as Lorinz' blind date from hell that provides his destined relationship with Sicuranza. Screenwriter Rocco Simonelli makes his directorial debut winningly with his sharp slightly skewed valentine to true romance of the flawed. Echoes of Woody Allen, Rob Reiner, Ed Burns and Kevin Smith prove throughout as influences yet the comedy remains solid as it is by itself. A sleeper indie that should be seen by anyone whose lost in love.
