The relentless quirkiness of the proceedings proves wearisome, and the bizarre structural conceit is not enough to compensate for the overly familiar characterizations and story line.

The movie, which looks like it was made on the cheapest camera borrowed from the A/V club, was apparently based on the experience of its writer, Reed Fish, who should either await more interesting experiences or work up some imagination.

The acting is good, the turf is familiar, and the mood is sweet without causing diabetes.

David Cornelius

A breezy, wholly engaging ninety minutes spent with a delightful cast.

The moment this movie started I was a little worried. I'm not sure what it was that made me feel this way. I think it was the notion that I was watching… More

Cute but the twist was weird and just confused me for the rest of the movie.
