Paxton: Maybe you were right Sergeant. Maybe when your head's too full of someone, you get hurt. Or other people do.
Tony: Well I sure hope not Miss Andrews, 'cause like I said, you've been messing around in my head for the last eight months.

Best movie ever
29 January 2003 | by amanda_droverSee all my reviews

I saw this movie a few years ago and I thought it was wicked. It was so romantic and I cried every time that Paxton did.. She was such a strong girl. I think the best thing she did in that movie was try to find Tony. I think he was the best thing that happened to her in her whole experience.
