 followed her Oscar-winning role in My Cousin Vinny with her terrific performance in this so-so romantic comedy. She plays an overworked, overtired waitress who falls in love with the sensitive busboy () who works at her diner after he saves her from being assaulted by a couple of thugs. What makes this film a cut above most others in the genre is that its characters aren’t perfect teen supermodels, but real people who find each other and, in doing so, find for themselves a small moment of peace. The Love Story ending is a bit infuriating, but the fresh appeal of its stars makes it worthwhile.
