This is a light romantic comedy with great shots of the University of New Mexico.
As an extra in this movie, I got to see the behind the scenes production and found myself entranced by the innate sweetness of Holly Hunter and Karen Allen. The movie is not terribly deep; however, it it is funny and provides what it was meant to: entertainment. Filmed mostly at the University of New Mexico in the early 80's, the scenery is gorgeous.
