Excruciating!
13 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

I want my two hours back! I'm a married man who somewhat prides himself on actually liking what is commonly known as the "chick-flick". i've always been a sucker for the "boy meets girl, girl teases boy, boy goes nuts trying to capture the heart of girl" tales. films recently such as "the notebook" really captured me while watching them. but this film - it's a mess. it's amateur. it's painful to watch. cheesy over dramatization of the leading characters is embarrassing. line's such as "the pant's did perform a miracle... they brought me to you" are waaaaay to cliché for my tastes. even my wife hated it. her exact quote after sitting through the flick was "feel free to destroy that DVD". if my penny pinching wife is willing to toss out a $19.95 DVD, that should tell you something.
