Storyline

Flawed But Worth Watching
30 March 2000 | by aaronrich74See all my reviews

Okay, so after five minutes you know how this movie is going to end. The cliches pile on one after the other. Dumb dialog is probably more common than it should be. And some of the acting is pretty weak. But none of that matters !! This is a variation of the boy-meets-girl flick that we've all seen a thousand times but can't help enjoying anyway. It even has a great song in it. And so what if the father's accent doesn't match the son's ? When this pops up on cable some late night, and you sit down to watch, you won't regret it.
