This enjoyable romance about love in the Big Apple isn’t good enough to go beyond its straight-to-video trappings, but isn’t horrible either. Ione Skye is a sleepless cafe waitress who decides that when customer Mackenzie Astin drops by to get a cup of coffee, she has met the man of her dreams. Pal Jennifer Aniston tries to support her but is too busy planning her move to California to become a successful actress. Enjoyable ensemble work between the cast puts this mild distraction over, as does its charming romantic feel and Skye being at her most appealing.
