"Young Antonio Banderas. Better than old Antonio Banderas? Much."
3 stars

So Antonio is in love. Fresh out of prison he finds the girl of his dreams, a soap opera star he spotted on TV, kidnaps her and proceeds to spend 'quality time' with her, waiting for her to fall in love with him.

"Is the movie worth seeing" I hear you query. Well, it's subtitled, so that's half of you out already. No offence or anything, but how many of you see "subtitled" on the video box and put it back on the rack? Thought so. Don't even talk to me, you cultural peasant.

So anyways, this is a cute li'l film. It's a date movie, a European Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan flick. Harmless. Fun. And early Antonio is actually quite impressive. No, not that way you gutterbrain, I mean his acting is impressive. I hate guys. Okay?

Oh forget it. You've ruined this review for me, you creeps.

See the movie, or don't. I could care less.
