Nick De Angelo: It's okay, Victoria invited me.
Colin Gilchrist Fisher: Oh, Victoria invited you. Well, if Victoria invited you, you'd better come and have a drink. What was all that nonsense of yours on the river yesterday? What was that about?

Quite generic
25 November 2017 | by mandresgasaSee all my reviews

This film in my opinion shows Rob Lowe for teenager fans. The rest lacks of script, hooks, actings, even the history is plain and uninspired. The nice guy travel to England to know the girl of his dreams and the British despised him (In Oxford) but he succeed. Also the British characters are boring, tedious, predictable. I don't want to spoil but it's only a film to remember the eighties and Rob Lowe and Ally Sheedy (Maybe the strongest point). The rest can't be much more accomplished and has some real flaws... specially on the script aspect. The scenes of rowing towards the river and competitions are the best of this movie. Only for fundamentalists of Rob.
