THIS IS A TRUlY GREAT MOVIE. Watts,(Mary Stuart Masterson) is in love with her best friend Keith. Nonetheless, she tries to help him win the love of Miss Amanda Jones . The lesson he ends up learning is the basis for this witty but sweet comedy-love story.

"Assembly-line feature from the John Hughes teen factory. - Pat Graham, Chicago Reader Lighter and less filling than usual. - Rita Kempley, Washington Post This time it ends with the underdogs together. Oddly enough, it's this conclusion that feels phony, seeing as Stoltz has spent the last 80 minutes arranging his dream date with Lea. - Derek Adams, Time Out "
