  • 5 stars "LOVED IT ! ! ! ! !"
  • 5 stars "Beautiful little romance, it's a disgrace that this pleasant movie only gets one showing a night and only for one week to boot while other garbage runs for weeks on end.."
  • 1 star "If you are a teenager, you may find this movie realistic and romantic. So, enjoy! As an adult with any life experience, you will find it frustrating, unrealistic and cheesy. So, avoid!"
