Stole precious minutes from my life
5 August 2001 | by minusoneSee all my reviews

I must admit, I only saw the first 20 minutes, and the last 5 minutes. The plot was SO predictable. Ten minutes in, I asked my fellow viewer (who had seen it) does X happen and Y turn out to be Z? And I was right 100%.

It was, without mincing words, awful.

Specifically, the score was horrific and made me laugh at points. The acting of the main character, Dana, was one-dimensional -- she went around with this dull, "what the hell is going on" look on her face.

But the worst part was the vomit-inducing camera work. Scenes start with a medium two shot, and then zoom into one character, pan left, and then zoom out again to a two shot. It looked like the camera operator and director were having a great time playing with the zoom button on their dad's new camcorder.

If you want to see some sickly sweet love story, find something with Karen Valentine on Lifetime.
