simple and rewarding
For those who have commented that everything in this movie has been done
before, so what? The performances by the leads are quite charming and
effective. The movie is simple with little added to the genre, but what it does employ is rewarding to the viewer. The idea of Ed's fish-out-of-water situation is not overdone or used as a crutch. Instead, there are only minimal exaggerated comic moments of stereotypical New York moments. This movie, which I had
never really heard of, is sweet and filled with endearing characters involved in everyday circumstances.
I knew Matthew Ross looked familiar, and upon glancing at his filmography I
was surprised at how many smarmy characters he has played (usually a little
over the top). He is very charismatic and has a nice naive quality. The lead actress, who looks like Annabelle Sciorra's (sp?) relative, is also very likable and has a nice chemistry with Ross. I was very surprised at how enjoyable this film was. There is not a whole lot to the film, but it is very emotionally rewarding and worth checking out.
