Shaking my Head
20 August 1999 | by Watcher-37See all my reviews

Okay, the movie was pretty awful, though it didn't make me want to vomit. I'm trying to figure out what the makers of this film were thinking. The most amusing part of the film was of course all the dates that the lead character got set up on. Of course it wasn't all that original because the dates from hell is a standard plot in every movie and sitcom. I am a fan of Bridget Fonda's, and even though she wasn't a big name at the point of this film's making, I have to wonder why she would consent to be in this. Other than she needed the money. I definitely don't need to see this one again. It may have been aiming for charmingly goofy, but it ended up at the destination of head shaking bad.
