Storyline

A pastry boy and the son of a hair-piece mogul become involved in an arson scandal. Sergio is offered a bribe in exchange for taking the blame for the fire that destroys his workplace. Garet, the real arsonist, is apalled that someone else would try to take credit for his act of love. Before long, Sergio and Garet become entangled in a zany love-quadrangle involving Hattie and Stephanie. Written by Brian Whiting <bwhiting@holly.colostate.edu>

Quotes

Stephanie Potts: [Walks up to Garet sulking in a train station] Ahem.
Garet: Stephanie?
[She punches him, knocking him off his seat]
Garet: Wha-? Wha-? What was that for?
Stephanie Potts: I am tired of waiting for you. Now, whether you know it or not, we are in love with each other.
Garet: You're in love with me?
Stephanie Potts: Is there an echo in here? Yes, I am in love with you. And it's an aching, torturous love, which wrenches the lower extremities. Now, get up before I throw you onto the tracks.

Absolutly one of my favorite films
14 April 2004 | by ryu-11See all my reviews

This movie is exeptionally entertaining. It doesn't try to be anything more than it is, which is some thing in the romantic comedy vein. And don't take that to mean the movie is your typical Sandra Bullock chick flick. As a guy i am entirely enthralled by this flick. This is largely because of the cast. Billy Baldwin is definitly my favorite in this one. He's great at portraying a complete flake against John Leguizamo's straight man. The plot works great for me, with Baldwins odd behavior providing much of the thrust. I love the great Old New York feel the film has, which largely comes from the bakery and Sergio. In short i really love everything about this movie. Go watch it. Its on TV often enough, and a DVD recently popped up.
