I liked it!!!
4 July 2002 | by DebjuhSee all my reviews

I didn't read the book. Only saw the movie the day before yesterday. And I liked it!!! It's just a thing were I can think of the whole day. Fall in love wanted to marry then find some one better. Sounds a little bit stupid but I'm a dreamer. I love movies like this and I hope others too. Actually I like Paudge Behan he's so cute. And he plays very good. And you Jay I don't get it. Why are you watching a movie you just don't like?? Only to give bad comments. Or cause you really aren't interested in this movie. Well maybe I get my answer a day. But people it's a very good movie and what Jay finds I don't care. I hope you are going to watch it too!! Bye bye kisses Deborah
