This always happens.
Whenever there's anything good, it fucks up.
It fucked up, but it fucked up because *we* forgot.
No, you fucked it up because you made a fucking toast!
Because I love you. We all love you. We forgot the food because you were being loved. That's the important thing to remember.

After a blind date Jack tries to prove how much he likes Connie. Un-original idea, great acting carries it. I say B-.
After being set up on a blind date by his friends, Jack (Hoffman) promises to take Connie (Ryan) boating. Jack then begins to do everything he can to prove how much he like Connie. There are movies that come out that are 99% special effects and 1% acting, some are good but no matter who plays the parts it doesn't affect the movie. This one is the opposite. The story itself is one that has been done 1,000 times. A married couple sets up two awkward people and they start to fall in love while the original couple is splitting up. I know we've all seen that over and over, but the acting in this one makes it seem fresh and new. The story itself is very slow moving and basic, but the acting of all 4 main actors are what keeps you watching the movie. This is the definition of a character driven movie, the acting in the scene where Jack burns dinner is worth watching the movie for by itself. The movie is probably a C- but when the acting is taken into account it raises the level of the film. I say B-.
