Mediocre but has a good female lead.
13 February 2007 | by MUBandoSee all my reviews

While it is a cheaply made story about how a messed up guy gets a beautiful lonely woman to fall in love with him, the true find in this movie is the female lead, Monica Serene Garnich. While Monica has had several bit parts as well as being cast on MTV's two soaps, unfortunately she got out of acting after this movie. That is a shame because she carries this movie despite some rather weak writing and stereotypical characters. The male lead has the typical male character flaws of trying to show off for every woman he meets as well as constantly lying and leaving out vital information, such as his kids. Jennifer Gareis is perfectly cast as the overly sexy ex-wife and delivers a definitely over the top overacting performance that adds some much needed humor to this story. If you are looking for a little different love story and can actually find it, this is a decent movie if you can get past the flaws. The scenery of Big Bear, California and performance of Monica Garnich are definitely worth watching. Much of the music was written and performed by Monica as well.
