Number of Times Seen – 3-5 times (Cable in the 90’s and 24 Jan 2016)
Brief Synopsis – Three New Yorkers who are complete strangers time share an apartment and things get a bit confusing when one of them falls in love with the wrong person.
My Take on it – This is a guilty pleasure of mine.
I’m a sucker for rom-coms of the 80’s and 90’s and for some reason this one always made me feel great because of the clever way the story is told.
The characters never meet which is what makes this so much fun since it is a premise that screams for miscommunication and funny situations.
Loved the way that they let the characters communicate with each other through some very funny scenes when they leave messages or presents for one another.
Yes, this is quite predictable (as with most rom-coms), but it still has a fresh take on the genre and some pretty funny scenes.
Matthew Broderick and Annabella Sciorra are both great here.
Bottom Line – Clever idea for a Rom-com. Great subtle comic scenes when each leaves messages or presents for the others. The story is quite predictable, but still refreshing and funny. Great cast. Recommended!
