Horrible

This is a really, really bad movie. First of all - I really enjoyed Can't Buy Me Love

  • which is by far such a superior film you can hardly compare. The thing


about that was that you believed Patrick Demsey was a geek. Here - the main actor is purely acting geeky - and misses by a mile. The main girl is very cute and very good - but does not make up for a horribly directed lead male. What was the director thinking here? The entire audience in the theater thought the same thing - why did we come here....
