Hey...busy? No? Good... let's make a movie
24 April 2000 | by BobboFairbro01501See all my reviews

What is an cool concept, and has a good cast, turned into a totally predictable, snoozy, sometimes silly flick.

OK, so she falls for schmaltzy, cliche-ridden, new-age psycho-babble and takes Mr. Goodbody home. Right... OK, so after 1 tryst she's in love. Right... OK, so after 1 tryst she decides to surprise her new "love of her life" at work with her friend in tow. Right... OK, so after 1 month of not seeing or hearing from this fella she freaks out after glimpsing him... wonderfully back-lit I might add. Right...

And what's up with Dyan Cannon lip-synching and trying to be fabulous as Ms. Pop Star?? Waste of her (and Mariel's) talent on this on.

The token gay friend/colleague character was a little cliche. Nice stereotype to perpetuate; that all gay men drop their friends like a hot potato after stealing glances at "Mr Right Now" in a theater. Nice...

In case I'm not clear... Kiss this one goodbye.
