In the first season, the door next to Val's door is proven useless. Her apartment is too widely spaced for that door to lead to a neighboring apartment, and it's entrance would have been covered up by a large wooden dresser. See more »

User Reviews

A terrific show.
19 May 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Whether you live in the U.S., or in Canada (and if you have cable), you'll be able to enjoy the laugh-out-loud comedy of 'What I Like About You'.

'What I Like About You' stars Amanda Bynes as Holly, Jennie Garth as Val, Simon Rex as Jeff, and Wesley Jonathon as Gary. Together, they are hilarious. Amanda Bynes gets to express a more mature type of comical material, leaving the little kid in 'All That' and 'The Amanda Show' behind.

Jennie Garth, previously starring in 'Beverly Hills 90210' seems kind of tedious and uptight as the older sister to Bynes, but she appears to loosen up into a nice, more humorous groove after awhile.

The story is like this: Holly (Bynes) has to move in with her older sister, Val (Garth), after their Father is moving to Japan. These two don't exactly go together like whipped cream and pumpkin pie (or whatever it is you think is a great combo!), but they love each other, and learn to get along in the end. After all, it's for the greater good!

I recommend this show to anyone who needs a laugh.
