The 1980s were not a particularly inspired era, so it's appropriate that a middling romantic comedy like this one would earn the title of quintessential movie of the decade.

The movie builds up a lot of good will early on, which is needed when the time comes to resolve its farcical complications.

Obviously, no new ground is being broken here, but director Ross keeps things humming in an endearingly old-fashioned way.

Does the movie really believe anyone is as stupid as these characters? Does it care?
