Afterall its a RomCom
14 November 2010 | by shashank-shanky5See all my reviews

Last night i had the chance to watch this not so popular, not so well known movie and i must say its definitely better than 5.6(current rating) .Patrick Dempsey despite playing a role of teenager has a character much matured than that in Cant buy me love.But is very natural and plays his part of a aspiring writer perfectly. Helen Slater was a total surprise. This was d first movie of hers i have seen and she plays a really difficult role with much ease and effortlessly. Happy Together is so much better than crappy teen comedies and other rubbish RomComs.Overall its a good watch with lots of entertainment.Recommended for fans of RomCom.They wont be disappointed
