Overall, pretty good
30 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So the movie might be a little cheesy but I found it fun as well. My favorite part, and I am bias when it comes to this, is the setting of the movie. It was based in Amsterdam and the lead character rides his bike just like the locals do, the canals and cute outdoor cafés are visible in the background, etc... I think the idea behind the movie is great and it has a lot of potential but it does fall just a little short on the expectations list. I watched this movie on a plane traveling over to Europe and found it to be a nice break from the mainstream Hollywood movies. Besides, with 9 hours on a plane to kill, it was a nice break, subtitles and all!
