The best the makers of Down to You can hope for is that girls in their early teens--clearly the film's target audience--will be so carried away by its charismatic stars that they'll overlook the film's various flaws.

The highlights of the movie are a great song, Sam Phillips' "I Need Love,'' which comes at the end, and Stiles' affecting crying scene.

Ah, young love. It can be quaint and heartwarming, but is largely inconsistent and painful -- kind of like this movie.

There's nothing wrong with Down to You that a smart script and savvy direction couldn't cure.

Stinko movies often unwittingly critique themselves -- and the brain-dead romantic comedy Down to You (which Miramax understandably didn't screen in advance for critics) is no exception.

A disaster: dull, predictable, at times cringe-worthy.
