Variety Review

By DANIEL M. KIMMEL

- a light entertaining romantic comedy about commitment in the ‘90s

- sweet-natured indie production… reveals first-time director Maria Burton as talent to watch.

- Pic becomes a comment on the single life ...

- Palermo and Barone are engaging as the couple destined to get together. Supporting cast of young talent is also a plus, with Tim Bohn and Allen Lulu amusing as Peter’s friends.

Tech credits are solid...film’s modest budget used to good effect showcasing L.A. locations.
