    It's a warped kind of romantic comedy in which the whole is substantially less than the sum of the parts.

    A slow burner of a movie which at some points the flame is all but extinguished.

    The story certainly opens avenues which could have, should be been more visually enhanced along with the pace and character relations.

    I so wanted to watch this after waiting 15 years to see it and compose a great review but alas....

    Ultimately i wish I could back travel 15 years, watch this on VHS before the dawning of online review sites and save myself 5 minutes I will never get back.

    Not worth watching in my opinion unless there really is nothing else to watch.

It plays like a mobius strip but without all the usual **** that comes with a time based plot. Glad I came across this and would highly recommend it.
