A nice idea and decent cast are let down by an incredibly superficial script that never goes anywhere and has very little to say. Ultimately empty and pointless.

Travolta is good, but the film is a huge mixed bag.

Charming, funny, romantic and heartbreaking. Travolta is completely lovable, as is Sedgwick. Has one of my top ten romantic scenes of all times.
