    I was expecting this to be mildly amusing at best, a bit sophomoric, and average storyline. Instead I was completely entertained and engrossed. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it as well. It's not just another immature comedy - the characters are complex and you feel empathetic toward them. It was quite moving in parts. If you enjoy films about an underdog or struggling to find your way through life, you will completely enjoy this.

    Patriacia I Love this movie I want the sound track and DVD, I watch this movie every day. I loved the bathroom sene when he put the wash cloth over his eyes, got wet and rolled off the roof, I laugh so hard and cried when he sang for her. But what do I know I'm a hopless romantic fool.
