I remember watching this on HBO when I was a kid. Can't remember exactly what it was about except that Jon Silverman hooked up with someones wife...HEY I was 13 so that was all I was thinking about anyway.

I'd never heard of this movie before, I happened to have it on HBO when I woke up and it was playing, I caught part of it and decide I wanted to check it out. Jonathon Silverman was so cute in this movie, I enjoyed it.
