While I am most definitely a child of the 80's, I wasn't a crazy Alyssa Milano fan or anything. I've seen her recently on a few shows here and there and have come to better appreciate her style. She has some amazing chemistry with both male leads, but especially with Christopher Gorham (who plays adorable without even really trying). And the character of her brother, played by Tom Lenk, was a really nice choice of comic relief.
I read an interview with the writer/director, Daryn Tufts, and knew from the beginning that there was going to be something different about this film. He said he didn't want to do a typical romantic comedy. Just when I thought I had figured out the twist, I was surprised. (Maybe you are more astute than I, my brain is a little fuzzy right now with pollen and hormones.) It's on Netflix Instant Watch and it's rated PG. It's definitely a grown-up movie, not for kids, but other than a couple of mild instances of romantic innuendo, it had nothing objectionable on screen or language-wise.
Let me know if you enjoy it, too!
