Goofs

In the scene where in Francesca imagines that she was Trinity from The Matrix, the reflection of the door knob shows that she was still wearing her old clothes from the previous scene and the not the tight leather clothing of Trinity. In the next shot she slowly raises her hands to her head, but the next shot shows her hands are already on her head, the follow shot shows again her hand being slowly raised. See more »

Pleasantly surprised
4 July 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Perhaps it's because when one sees, "MTV Films", in the opening credits, one's expectations then hit rock bottom. It's as if MTV lulled me into a false sense of security, knowing the usual "depth" of their projects. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this little film. It doesn't hurt that I could watch Scarlett Johansson sitting on a couch doing nothing and I'd be enthralled for hours. At any rate, I found the film, though cliched, quite cute. Roy, the obvious comic relief, played his role very effectively, I laughed at him often. The other characters were of lesser involvement, but several stereotypical demographics were adequately represented: the brain, the jock, the average joe, the stoner, the angry rich girl, and the decent good guy. It truly was as if MTV was trying to create "The Breakfast Club", twenty years later, for a new generation. If they succeeded in that is debatable, but at least the made a decent, funny flick.
