Storyline

Peter loves his next door neighbour Erica and, on the advice of his grandfather, decides to camp out on her front lawn for the entire summer, or until she agrees to go out with him. His father is none too happy about the idea and refuses to let his son back in the house, even to get a change of clothes. Peter's friend, Matt, thinks Peter should give up on women (like he has) and just have sex with fruit, and have a total devotion to masterbation.

Very Funny Film
21 August 1999 | by Watcher-37See all my reviews

I watched this film last night and I was roaring my head off as the adventures of the lead character got more and more out there in his pursuit of his life long love, played by the very scrumptious Keri Russell. The exploits of the guy's best friend in his search for self satisfaction were unbelievably funny, and this movie turned in to quite a nice viewing surprise.
