Interesting...
28 August 1999 | by moviegrl-9See all my reviews

I watched this movie, and I didn't quite know what to expect. I got everything I wanted.

The general storyline was a little predictable (hmm, she agrees to drive him cross-country to meet his girlfriend, and they end up falling in love. Who would've thought?) But the story unfolding on the screen (ignoring the premise behind it) was cute, and very entertaining. If you can get past the fact that this movie has a pretty basic "Yeah, you all know they're gonna fall in love" idea, then you will enjoy this movie.
