Jensen Ackles was originally supposed to wear extensions, because they wanted his mohawk to be nearly a foot tall. But his hair grew long enough to be spiked on its own just in time for filming. See more »


When Noah calls Piper at work, he hears the dial tone at the end of the conversation as if she has hung up first. However, the camera switches back to Piper who is using a cord phone which would need to be hung up in order to end the call. See more »


Tish: Look, why don't you and Brad just admit that the girl's unnecessary and get on with it?
Tadd: What are you talking about?
Tish: Are you so far in the closet you can't see the light? You and Brad are hot for each other. You just use the girl to pretend you're straight.
Tadd: [Grabs her and throws her against the wall] You listen to me. I'm no fag. I was captain of the football team in high school.
Tish: Let me guess: you were a tight end, always too afraid of becoming a wide reciever? Why don't you just be a man and ...

Charming, well-acted rom-com
29 April 2007 | by zootlet2See all my reviews

I saw this at the Santa Cruz Film Festival and enjoyed it immensely. Jensen Ackles stole the show--anyone who watches Supernatural knows he's got great comedic timing--but the other roles were well-played, too (particularly Clea DuVall), and the story/characterization unfolded believably (for a rom-com) and enjoyably. The core of the script, with the team of friends working together at the sub shop, was engaging and smart, and the plot was solid (avoiding the huge leaps that plague many films) and even contained a few unexpected twists. I laughed, a lot; my companion cried, a little. I can't wait until this gets wider distribution so I can watch it with more of my friends. Perfection, no; an enjoyable evening's entertainment, surely. I'll be buying this when it's available.
