Be patient; it gets better
15 March 2005 | by vchimpanzeeSee all my reviews

Angie has known Jamie for years, and while they dated for a while, she only wants a platonic relationship. Jamie wants more. Angie's roommate Rita wants Jamie if Angie doesn't, and Jamie likes Rita okay, but he refuses to give up on Angie. Jamie turns into a stalker, but he's more annoying than dangerous. Complicating the situation are Angie's ex-boyfriend Glen, Rita's ex Clete, and Jamie's ex Jenny (who wears VERY short shorts).

At first I thought the summary of my comments was going to be 'not the first time either'. None of the characters were appealing except possibly Jamie. But as the movie progresses, and Jamie gets more annoying, Angie's reaction is not the obvious one, and she becomes easy to like. The movie as a whole appears to be a quality low-budget production in the second half.

Susie Cusack (sister of John and Joan) finally shows she can live up to the family name with a pleasant and humorous performance. Michael David Lally is good as Lenny, who Angie turns to for comfort but doesn't seem like boyfriend material. Mia Cottet also gives a good performance as Celina, a possible mate for Jamie.

Tobacco companies have often been accused of not putting strong enough warnings on packages. The problem appears to have been solved here. 'Death' brand cigarettes come in a black package with a large skull and crossbones. The warning apparently works because Rita, despite being depressed, doesn't light up.

Angie works out of her house for 'Save the Rodents'. She never seems to do any actual work, and the only person who ever calls is Jamie. We never really learn what the organization does, though mice are shown in the adorably cartoonish art with the closing credits (you HAVE to stay around for that).

There are many different styles of music, including effectively comical background music, but I especially enjoyed the traditional jazz in two scenes that were just too short--one with Rita and Jamie in a restaurant, and one with Angie and Lenny drinking.

This is actually a good movie if you don't give up on it.
