      The Good Guy has an attractive cast, but they aren't done any favors by the film's cardboard characters and cliched plot. Read critic reviews

        I was surprised to see this has a fairly bad rating, I actually quite enjoyed it. I picked it up fairly cheap as it has Alexis Bledel in it. I would never claim she is a great actress, but I liked The Gilmore Girls, and she does have a pleasant girl next door quality which makes her watchable. Then I noticed Andrew McCarthy and Anna Chlumsky where also in it. Even better The story pretty much just follows a girl and her relationship with her boyfriend, and his situation at work. It is one of those all are not as it seems stories. Along the way there are a few laughs with some fun supporting characters and also a male makeover, which makes a change to the usual ugly duckling girl story. I found this pleasant viewing which didn't drag in it's 80 minute run time.

        This was actually pretty entertaining. It was a little short, but it was better than I thought it would be.

        Not bad. Not great. Seemed to make an attempt at a nice romantic drama, but doesn't quite go all the way.
