Kimberley Jones Austin Chronicle Rated: 2/5 Mar 10, 2003 Full Review Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer With remarkable grace, [Teplitzky's] actors balance the competing demands of candor and whimsy, and the result, while not unforgettable, is charming. Dec 20, 2001 Full Review Jay Carr Boston Globe Runs out of impulse and falls back on glibness. Rated: 2/4 Dec 7, 2001 Full Review Daniel Eagan Film Journal International A paper-thin script that is by turns fatuous and emotionally fraudulent.

Audience Member Thoughtfully sexy. No sexually explicit shooting, but lots of reflective sensuality; with a sense of humor. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Really cute and funny little film! Loved it a lot!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Yes. Not sure whether it was the chemistry of the actors or the quirky take on the story, but this was a good time. Hot without trying to hard, funny without pushing, touching without overstating the drama . Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member A one-idea plot, buoyed by two very agreeable leads. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A wonderful Chic Flick! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Soft core porn movie about two people who think they know what they're getting into and end up falling for each other. An eye-opening look at sexual relationships and the mating game. Commentary from the couples' friends is a nice touch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
