I've seen better
15 March 2005 | by SnoopymicheleSee all my reviews

This movie was made in the spirit of Friends meets Reality Bites. But unfortunately, it misses the mark. I know, the early nineties was filled with tons of talky indy comedies about couples breaking up and making up and some of them are better than others. Well, this is not one of the better ones. It is just too cliché for its own good. It was a shame to take such an interesting and attractive cast and just waste their talents on the horrible drivel that tried to pass for dialogue. The direction was sloppy, the pace was like a snail, and the film just kind of fell apart. I got the feeling that at least one cast member did this movie as a favor for one of his friends in the business, while another wanted to get her feet wet in the film industry in hopes of moving on to bigger or better things. You know what they say about good intentions......
