I consider this movie to be either underrated or rarely spoken about. It is a movie that needs to be watched more than once. It is more than a simple romantic drama; it has an original storyline, which can often have holes poked in it because of the contradictions in it,if it were real life. However, if it is accepted for what it is, it is a clever,charming and cool movie with great acting from the lead men.
