Review by Kat (posted on 17-Mar-2005)

I saw this on Lifetime and *smiles* it kinda felt that way, if you catch my drift. That said, the girl who plays the lead does a great job, and the story is interesting and holds your attention all the way through. A couple plot points do come off as cliche and in the end you might walk away with that "Oh my god what did I just watch for 2 1/2 hours?" feel... but personally I was entertained and amused. I laughed. I cried. I ate popcorn. It was a good time. I recommend it. Good man-hating movie too! Maybe not the best for sensitive viewers, some graphic scenes.
