About a guy whose life didn't quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.
Stacy Holt, an associate producer for a daytime talk show, is confounded by her boyfriend Derek's unwillingness to talk about his previous relationships. Egged on by her co-worker Barb, Stacy sneaks a look at his personal digital organizer, scores the names and numbers of his exes, and sets up interviews with them--all in an effort to get closer to her man. Her plan starts to unravel, however, when she becomes friends with one of the women. Written by

Question: How does a girl who falls... No, actually, she jumps... eyes open, down a rabbit hole, plummeting into chaos... come out the other end unchanged?
The answer? She doesn't.
See, I know, because that girl is me.

a nice stroll through life that is sadly lacking any meaning
7 is my score for a movie that I enjoyed for different reasons, story, camera work, sound, dialog; but managed to do something so stupid or thoughtless that it managed to ruin the movie as a whole. 7 means, if you want a good movie that will make you all happy inside, stay away. But if you're not a jerk and you appreciate cinematography as an art form, you may see something in this movie that makes watching it, and all the garbage that it carries along with it worth while.
I never wanted to see this movie. It's not that I am against chick flicks, I'm not (is As Good as It Gets a chick flick? That was a good movie). It's just that the people hired to promote the movie decided that misrepresenting the movie as another stupid romantic female comedy was a good idea. What probably happened was, people went, expecting the movie to be full of the shots that were advertised, and were disappointed because it attempted to accomplish something beyond the humdrum new boyfriend, palm pilot, fart joke, fainting, lost love, they end up happy routine. That was what I expected, and I was so pleasantly surprised that it was nothing like the advertisements, that I almost gave it a nine. but, sadly I started thinking, and the amount of loose ends at the end of the movie killed it completely. Not one character in the movie had a complete conclusion to their story line. It boggles my mind how they could let this happen. It seems impossible that the people who made the film made the ending. I loved the film, there was much less palm pilot than I expected, there was a great vibe to the film, some people put Carly Simon down, or what ever her name is, but the reoccurring music, and deviations off the linear path it set was what made the movie enjoyable.
If you read anything in this comment read this: stop the film about ten minutes before it ends right when Stacey says "I need to go jump into the river". Stop it there and insert your own ending. If you saw the same movie as me it should be easy, because the characters are well developed (admittedly, towards the end, they could have easily had a big explanation that would have made everyone happy, the characters need not explain themselves, because the events of the movie did a wonderful job at conveying every character in that movie. It's a shame that all that work and good writing went to waste on such a crummy ending. Though I must say that it at least tries to be a proper ending, making it second only to Darkness, as the worst ending I have ever seen.
