    A cute romantic drama which is not that different from "When Harry met Sally".
    All the leads do a nice job in portraying teenagers and young adults in pursuit of true love (or something similar to that).
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the picture is clear of scratches.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. There is an adequate usage of the surrounds occasionally and the music is loud and cool.
    The menus are all static.
    The disk contain no extras at all. What a shame.
    Bottom line - a cute movie for a rainy day.

    A surprising movie about friendship and relationships. Hadn`t heard too much about this one despite it having a great hollywood cast. The movie starts off well and though it is a bit slow moving, the story is vibrant and reveals the relationship of two different people who end up becoming the best of friends. This isnt really a comedy movie although Jason Biggs does add some funny scenes to the movie. The movie is about friendship and stuff. This isnt the most cleverest of movies and it doesnt send out many important messages but still its interesting to watch how the friendship begins and progresses and stuff. I really cant describe it in too much detail.

    The visuals and the sound arent that great but are of standard dvd quality. Nothing spectacular. This is a barebones dvd with nothing remarkable about it except perhaps the movie itself.

    There should have been some extras on the disc but there aint. Overall I reckon this is a great movie to rent. Its also out on region 2 with the same quality and also with no extras. Had the dvd had a better release, I would recommend buying it as I really enjoyed the movie although it doesnt have a great rewatchablitly rating.
