Funny, light-hearted and original
9 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I don't understand why the film received a rating of 2.9, but maybe it's because I like Paul Reiser and loved "Mad About You." Reiser is just as funny in this movie as he is as Paul Buchman on the hit sitcom, and squeezes in a few of his witty one-liners. The movie isn't brilliant, but it's often effective. It's a screwball comedy, yet it has a consistent charm and never spins out of control. Jessica Tuck is pretty and quite talented. Martin Mull steals the show as her greedy father, who doesn't approve of her quirky boyfriend. I enjoyed how the father disapproved of her current boyfriend, yet the guy that's chasing her (Reiser), whereas the romantic comedy formula in the movies usually requires it to be vice versa.

There are many funny moments and I always enjoy watching a little, low-budget film that proves to be very good. This is one of those underrated gems that's definitely worth a look.

My score: 7 (out of 10)
