Trivia

The location of the party during which Owen is attacked by Benicio, is a house on Bay Boulevard in Lavallette, NJ, across the lagoon from West Point Island in Lavallette. West Point Island is also the summer home owned by none other than famed Jersey-born actor Joe Pesci. See more »

Goofs

The morning scene on the bay featuring people fishing on the pier after Jenny's date with "Patrick" was actually an evening shot of the sunset, not the morning. One can tell by the coloring of the sky over the bay, which is in the west. Were it morning, the sun would be rising behind the camera, thus having a dark sky over the bay. See more »

Sweet and Endearing
28 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of this movie until I caught it on a movie channel on television. Once I saw a few minutes, I was hooked. Something about it drew me in. I spent the rest of the movie trying to figure out what that something was. I think I know.

It's a true "feel-good." It's not offensive, it's not run-of-the-mill, it's not cliché. In fact, I was surprised it was rated R, it could easily have gone PG or PG-13. Some of the humor is edgy, but the romance is pure and sweet, there are NO sex scenes (can you believe it) and yet it's still effective.

The characters are real and the acting is right-on. The dialog is strong. The plot is unique. Perhaps the climax scene is a little predictable, but it doesn't take away from the movie. It only adds to the lightness of it. Sometimes it's refreshing to just experience something that is in its essence sweet and good and simple. That's what this movie is. If I had one word to describe it, it would be "genuine." You feel genuine when you're watching it and you feel genuinely satisfied once it's over.

7.5
