It's like watching the dreckiest of teen puppy courtships trying to pass itself off as 'Annie Hall.

It's all reasonably pleasant to watch, but Isacsson doesn't seem to know what to do with the story once Al and Imogen fall in love.

Al (Prinze) and Imogen (Stiles) are 19-year-olds tackling New York college life. The course of their relationship is charted in numbing detail and interspersed with the antics of their quirky friends.

Belongs to that other kind of American teen comedy... movies of crushes and wagers and sex jokes, with patchwork plots and a standby army of eccentric comic sidekicks.

Doesn't summon up quite enough quirky personality to maintain its momentum through the final act.

The acting never gets muscular enough to make the audience care about what happens.

Relies too much on gimmicky flashbacks and the quirkiness of the movie's supporting characters to compensate for the uninteresting leads.

Flees from anything that might involve real human emotion, or for that matter any credible human activity other than looking good.

Writer/director Kris Isacsson, in his directorial debut, clearly has little confidence in the romantic 'A' story supporting his film.

Down to You is filled with all sorts of hokey moments that ruin its attempts to generate a pseudo-real, romantic atmosphere.

There's little chemistry between co-stars Freddie Prinze Jr. and Julia Stiles.

Mediocre at best.
