User rating is too low on IMDb, deserves at least a 7
30 December 2004 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

This is a nice relation drama/comedy flick.

After all the films I've seen in the past months it is nice to see a movie that has a convincing story and is situated in a place thats looks like it is on earth. Man meets woman and they fall in love. The comedy about it is that the leading character, Michael, only gets a hard one if he watches porn. Too bad.

But his girlfriend makes a big fuzz about it. Enough stuff for director and writer Sutherland to let us feel with Michael and maybe understand its problem (hey, thinking of it is alway hornier than doing it. Forget it, I had this discussion with my friends and we agreed about it). His lover Jasmine is not very into the porn and she sees it as a big problem. But hardly talks about it and lets poor Michael onto his own. Hey, it is the millennium, talk about it, pay a shrink for him! All is fair, this movie is very nice. It's interesting, funny and the main character Michael is likable and all actors do a great job. Ik give it a well deserved 7.
