Entertaining and fun.
17 July 2003 | by THB999See all my reviews

A lighthearted romp that is lots of fun. Great chemistry between Tim Matheson and Kate Capshaw. One of the early movies that launched Kate's career. I haven't seen this film in a while and am looking forward to seeing it again to see Wendie Malick in one of her first roles.
