Goofs

When Crawl and Rebecca first meet, he videotapes her from the door to her dorm room. In the following shot, we see a black-and-white shot from the point of view of his camera. Not only does it come from a significantly different location in the room, but also, Rebecca is looking well offscreen when she should be looking directly into the camera. See more »

Quotes

Walter: Uhh do you have a screw driver?
Crawl: Sorry, all out of vodka!

User Reviews

 
One of my new favourite Rom Coms
2 June 2018 | by AngelsAngelSee all my reviews

This movie was actually incredibly enjoyable to me. It was actually funny and not in an immature or inappropriate humour kind of way, in a just right kind of way. Pauly Shore's character Crawl is extremely endearing. He's quirky, he's fun, he's wild, but he's also an all around nice guy that you are totally rooting for the whole time and who is easy to empathize with. This movie made me laugh and smile, and even at times, wish that I had a guy like Crawl by my side too. It's no film masterpiece and is probably not going to stick with me forever, but it was good entertainment for the night, and I'd watch it again.
