I can't believe that I was stupid enough to actually like you seriously. I can't believe I almost lost myself to impress you. But you know what? What I really can't believe? Is that I let the one good and decent the, the most kind and
adorable human being in my life walk away. And because of what? You!

This is the funniest movie ABC family has shown in years! I truly loved it. I hope more comedies of this caliber will be aired on that channel. Ethan Embry was great for the role of Kyle, in his past work in other comedies, he has shown his ability to make people laugh and fall for his natural charm. Apart from good casting, the humor of the movie itself was refreshing. The plot was light and amusing, making the movie fun and enjoyable to watch after a long day. Nazemian and Schraft have clearly demonstrated their talent for writing light and ironic comedy, I look forward to seeing what they come with next. Now that they have proved themselves in this genre, I am eager to see their more serious and creative work. I'm sure we won't be disappointed.
