Not bad, but mostly not good.
27 June 2000 | by overcast22See all my reviews

The movie was not exactly a tear jerker, I've seen other movies that are a lot more sad, this one is sad but doesnt make a downpoor. The angry guy really annoyed me a lot, and I don't understand how this girl could be such a hor and yet be so tender hearted. What they needed to do is leave him in a hospital, not on some road trip.
