Fun, cute, wacky movie!
2 April 2005 | by ashizzSee all my reviews

This is one of my all time favorites. It's wacky, fun..not your typical movie. It takes you back to the days of "Partylines" and singles trying to hook up. So it's real fun for those of us who grew up in the days before the internet started up, and it seemed the phone was the way to get connected. It really brings back memories of the good old days! This movie is a nice romantic comedy, but like I said it's quirky and entertaining along the way...even odd at times! The main story line is about a young man looking for love and decides to give the party line a try. You will follow him in his adventure searching for love and in which it seems "all the wrong places". Give this movie a try and remember to rate it so hopefully one day it will come out on DVD.
