    I can't believe the shit I'm willing to sit through just because I like Jensen Ackles. Ten Inch Hero was okay, I guess, but plays more like something Nora Ephron had cobbled together in an afternoon in her backyard. What I was expecting was a film similar in tone to Empire Records, about quirky people connecting against the backdrop of a sandwich shop (one of my many loves). Romantic comedies are all well and good, but as a fan of narrative deconstructions on Cracked.com, I've come to demand a lot more from escapist drivel. The female protagonists in this movie are all neurotic messes or emotional cripples: there's the woman who stands up her internet boyfriend because she thinks that he's too hot to like her, the nymphochick who'll screw anyone except the smoldering Goth guy she works with and, my personal favorite, the young woman who fancies herself an artist that has taken to psychotically stalking her neighbour because she's under the impression that his daughter is the child she gave up when she was young. Is the creepiness of her behaviour invisible to the world of this movie? One of the things I resented about this movie is that it falls into the trap of so many teen movies in that it implies that the best way to score the affections of your crush is to throw away your own identity and forge a new one to better suit thier tastes. It's so sad. It also taught me that the object of your obsession will forgive obviously malignant behaviour if you can prove that you meant well, and that promiscuity is not a sign of freaky sexual appetites, but rather of emotional immaturity. I don't expect a lot of realism from rom-coms, but this movie was utterly fraught with reminders of its own artifice and contrivance. Jobs seemingly fall out of the sky in Santa Cruz, and the samdwich shop is run by a dude who's so laid back that he's willing to shut down his business while half his unprofessional staff absconds with his bus on a road trip so that one of them can get laid. I for one would never eat at Beach City Grill. Not only is the service terrible, but food safety standards here seem to be a little bit lax. If you won't respect each others' feelings, closed adoption laws or the rules of fashion, at least respect the mighty sandwich!

    I really liked this movie. I though it was gonna be another cliche movie about preps, nerds, and freaks, but it was the opposite in a way. The characters are all very different in a really good way. A sandwich shop owned by a "hippie" is like a home for all the offbeats. Just a group of five friends trying to figure out love and where it plays a role in their lives. Really enjoyed Jensen Ackles character, and he played it well. He had a lot of different hairstyles, shirts with funny comments, and said some offbeat stuff. He was my favorite in the movie. Just really pleasantly surprised by this movie. It touched on some serious issues as well. Like peer pressure, teen pregnancy, adoption, and just people being judged by their outer appearance. A fun watch, that I think a lot of people will enjoy.

    A sweet movie. It had some funny moments and some touching moments. There are some good lessons to be learned too. It was cute. On the flip side, it was predictable almost every step of the way, and in the end its happy endings for everyone. So its not especially realistic in that sense but its still a sweet film nonetheless. I dont regret watching it and will probably watch it again.

    <i>"Stop by, grab a sandwich, fall in love."</i> Four friends deal with their love lives and learn about themselves while working in a funky sandwich shop in Santa Cruz, California. <center><font size=+2 face="Verdana"><b><u>REVIEW</u></b></font></center> First of all, the movie's title - double entendre with sexual meaning - is not associated with the story except one or two brief jokes. I'm sure it sells better though. It's about the staff of the nice, cozy restaurant and their lives. What I'd like to point out, the characters are very well written, all of them are very appealing with whatever they're going through and have to say. They're revealing their true nature throughout the whole movie in sort of subplots that actually create the common multiplot of the movie. The nature of the film is a warm comedy, and bit of romance that comes in very non intrusive way. The acting is great, the scenes are OK and dialogs, funny and interesting. This movie deserves a high rating but as my expectations were low and experience great, mathematically speaking, it would deserve even more. If all comedies were this clever and witty, I would sure watch them more often.
