Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

A charming, feel-good romantic comedy, which admittedly is about as solid as a grass hut in a hurricane. Ione Skye is the sleep-disordered romantic who, with best friend Jennifer Aniston, is determined to make it big in Hollywood. But her life gets complicated by the arrival of hunky kindred spirit MacKenzie Astin, who has a girlfriend. She moves to LA, sure that he will dump the girl and follow her. Filmed in a mixture of black and white and colour, this has enough good lines to keep you smiling and the young cast members deliver attractive performances.
