"Save your money and invest in a Pet Rock. You'd get amusement from it than you will from this dreadful film. I picked it up at a Blockbuster previously viewed movie sale. Thank god it was only 1.99. And now I know why. IT'S AWFUL. I honestly tried to watch this movie, but I had to fast forward through most of it because of the insipid dialogue and trite premise. It tries to come off as a serio-comic romance, but it's boring, predictable and trite. If you come across it, lie very still and it may just sniff you and leave you alone. If it doesn't, may God take mercy on your mortal soul."

"I actually really enjoyed this movie--a lot. I throw this movie into the category of the successor to those relationship movies such as About Last Night and St. Elmo's Fire, but with a somewhat lighter tone. I thought the ending was well done. The characters and their situations felt real. I don't want to give parts of this movie away, but there are a few interactions with the guys that I found hilarious.I wish the DVD had more features--actually, any features. Apparently, they did not want to spend a lot of time to put any of those special DVD perks before they shipped it out."
Wrong movie, you idiots

"The movie your are reviewing is not the one this refers to. This one is about a woman who falls for the much younger roommate of an author whose book she is editing. She is obsessively in love with the young man and ruins her career and most likely her marriage and life, but that is for the movie to tell you.
If you are in a marriage or have been in an affair and worked it through or having trouble with your marriage... do not watch this. It can bring up a lot of troubling aspects of married life. I heartily recommend it to those who want to see what a train wreck looks like up close.
So, this is not set in Rio and is not stupid. Review the right movies."
