Goofs

When Philip is having a key made, the guy making the key holds it against a grinding wheel and then another wheel with wire bristles, used to finish making a key. During all of this, and when he stamps the key with info, it's apparent that there are no actual cuts in the key. It's still a key-blank he's about to hand to Philip. See more »

Mundane romantic comedy, Brooke Adams shines
16 October 2003 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Lisa (Brooke Adams) has a fine job as a producer for a NYC talk show starring David (Tony Roberts). She also has a somewhat steady boyfriend in Philip (Ben Masters) who adores bicycle racing. While Lisa would like to further the relationship with Philip, he is dragging his feet. She considers it a victory when he finally gives her a duplicate key to his apartment. Shortly thereafter, a close male friend of Philip's experiences a marriage break-up and Philip is even more reluctant to maintain an exclusive relationship. Will Lisa decide to give Philip more time or will she respond to David's growing interest in her?

This film is way down on the scale of successful romantic comedies. It lacks humor and is rather mundanely written. The key performers, especially Adams, display good acting abilities, but they don't translate into more than a routine day at the movies. Tried and true fans of romantic comedies may want to take a chance with this one after exhausting the video store and library of other examples of the genre. All other movie fans will find it has few redeeming qualities.
