    It's too mild to be crass; it's clumsy. Lehmann has made what amounts to an anti-sex sex comedy, the first youth sex comedy made to be enjoyed by those creepy abstinence teens.

    The sensibility of the movie is naggingly adolescent -- less erotic than squeamish and giggly. [11 Mar 2002, p. 92]

    So eyeball-gougingly awful that you're tempted to give up movies for Lent.

    Same old boring recycled rom com plot. Not even the no sex rule is new. There's nothing clever or funny about the dialogue. Next time let's just save some time and send the script straight to the XXX lots so the Hartnett fangirls can have their porn and leave real cinema to the big boys. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I liked it due to its pleasure from a sex comedy and has a fantastic romantic story between the two main characters but in the end, it's not so much of a comedy after you know who rapes Josh Hartnett. Full Review »
