Harmless and mildly entertaining
26 August 2006 | by ledryno2000See all my reviews

Sophie is from a Latin American country and married a U.S. citizen to enter the country. She's in school studying law and wants become a lawyer. Her fake husband takes all of Sophie's things from her apartment while she is there asleep, as well as emptying their shared bank accounts and credit cards AND he cancels her automobile insurance. The following day he admits to the theft and threatens to report their illegal marriage to the INS and have her deported if she reports him to the police. That's kind of how it starts.

I read the other review here before I saw the movie and so expected a bad movie. I was happily surprised. I liked it. It's not the world's greatest movie and I liked it.

Sophie's cousin refers to her husband as "harmless," which is a good description of this movie. It's harmless - a simple piece of fluff yet mildly entertaining. You'll even smile at a few places in the movie. It's something you might see on a family programming TV station.
