22 August 2004 | by LaDreamSee all my reviews

hey guys, this movie was so sweet :) I laughed and felt happy watching it.. and dreamt about a date like this.. and I really loved this Phil-dude! I know that I'm not real movie reviewer but sometimes you should just enjoy easy and fun romance story. btw, I'm 19.. so maybe I'm just in the right age to watch this kind of girlie-soapy stuff :) but I'm sure that some of my guy-friends would like it too. I will remember this as one of the best films I have seen this year.. well OK, maybe this isn't the film to remember after 3 years for example.. but right now I'm thinking that I liked it more than many other romantic comedies ( 2 weeks notice, serendipity, maid in manhattan, pretty woman etc).
