annoying
8 September 2001 | by icypunkSee all my reviews

i just finished watching it on Women's Entertainment channel, and i just thought the whole movie was just unrealistic and annoying. It started off well, until Dudley Moore got more involved with the girl and her mother so deep that he couldn't let go of them. To me, the girl was just a brat who got everything she wanted and wanted more, and very nosy about everything. I loved Dudley Moore, but i don't think it worked with Mary Tyler Moore at all. The girl was just plain annoying--and at the end, i was wondering how Dudley Moore won the election when he spent most of his time with the girl and the mother in new york.
