I saw this movie by accident. The movie that my friends and I wanted to see was sold out, and we decided to sit in on this one, mainly because Elisha Cuthbert is SMOKING!
Anyway, needless to say I didn't expect much of this movie. And my was I quite pleasantly surprised. I was amazed by the performances of Emile Hirsch and of Elisha Cuthbert, and of the ensembles as well. Danielle's "pimp" was quite a well-played character, and I must give the actor his due (though I can't bring his name to mind right now).
This movie is a wonderful blend of heart, humor, fantasy (please, who wouldn't want Elisha Cuthbert to move in next door), and downright SEX APPEAL.
The movie keeps you enticed at all times watching the relationship between the leads develop, all the way to the VERY surprising and rewarding ending. After this having been our begrudged fall-back, my friends and I walked out of the theater, and all we could say was, "Wow". None of us could find more eloquent words to describe the movie. Throughout the entire 20 minute drive from the theater, no words came to mind.
This movie is well worth buying. You should probably get the soundtrack too, since it is some sweet music.
