Drew is cute as always and so's Wilson

Drew comes through for us. Her easy charm and winning smile put us back on track, giving us something familiar and wonderful to cling to.

Perhaps the only Drew Barrymore movie she didn't really shine in. It's a bit too dark to be a fun romantic comedy.

Mindless entertainment. I was impressed with Catherine O'Hara's acting -- it must be hard to be that crazy. Drew Barrymore is always cute.

Really pointless. Really, really pointless.
