Goofs

Somerset is east of Sacramento. They would need to take 80 and 50, not the highways they were talking about. Not to mention, the area code there would be 530, not 510 like on the bench billboard (510 is for the East Bay). See more »

Very very funny!
14 August 2002 | by cruyff14See all my reviews

Although the plot is pretty simple, there are so many funny scenes that I still can't stop laughing hours after I've came out of the cinema.

It's very sweet too! Go see it!
