This is a strong dose of humor and laughter with heart and thought about what love truly is.
29 February 2000 | by barbarakerSee all my reviews

How charming to see a film that takes a delightfully humorous look at a serious subject - human relationships. Through the laughter and the very funny situations we can see the bittersweet feelings and longings of the human beings who want to love and be loved. Don't we all? This movie helps us acknowledge our comical behavior in the middle of a serious situation in real life, and enables us to laugh at ourselves. And, perhaps, to see where we need to change our behavior toward the people we love, and people in general. That is a lot of depth for a comedy to deliver, but this film does so, and does it extremely well.
