Goofs

The taxi cab Amy and Oscar take after leaving the restaurant (where they ate the tuna melt) changes from a newer model car they pulled over (and whose handle they broke), to an older boxier model in the cut scene with them driving away in the rain, then back to the same newer model they pulled over in the first place.

Quotes

Oscar Novak: [Peter is stood with a tub of hair gel and a weird hairdo] What the hell happened to your hair?
Peter Steinberg: You were gone for nine hours. I got bored. What happened?
Oscar Novak: It was a disaster. First our cab exploded, then I got hit in the face, then we both threw up, *then* she rammed a car handle into my balls. The whole night was a disaster.
Peter Steinberg: You fell in love with her.
Oscar Novak: Pretty much.

Harmless fun
15 March 2004 | by topcat-1See all my reviews

This movie has a chance to be cliched but usually avoids it deftly. It's not perfect nor full of belly laughs but pleasant enough. I haven't seen much of Matthew Perry's work, not being a "Friends" fan, but I was very impressed by his acting here, his expressions and comedic timing. Neve Campbell is adorable, the kind of spunky kooky girl you wish existed in real life - one of her better roles. If you're a fan of Matthew or Neve, you'll love the movie. Supporting cast does fine, direction, photography, music, all in place unobtrusively. A good director is one who you don't know is there. Damon Santostefano emerges from successful tv shows to do a fine job. (Clueless, The District, Honey I Shrunk The Kids).
