Oliver Platt is the best thing about the movie!
19 June 2000 | by madlynstarSee all my reviews

On the whole, this was an entertaining movie. Both Neve Campbell and Matthew Perry were believable in their respective roles. However, Oliver Platt was wonderful as Peter. He is definitely one of the most under-appreciated comedic actors of our time. Bravo Oliver!
