Down to you
adopts a twist on the traditional love story, Al (Freddie Prinze Jr., I Know What You Did Last Summer
) and Imogen (Julia Stiles from 10 Things I Hate About You
) take turns narrating the story of their college romance. However the dialogue is stale, the story flounders, and the movie can't decide whether it wants to be a sweet romance or a social satire. Down to You
keeps dropping into odd fantasy bits that have nothing to do with, well, much of anything. Al has a celebrity chef for a father (an amusing turn from Henry Winkler) and a rising porn star for a best friend (Zak Orth). But all the stars--including Selma Blair (Cruel Intentions
) and Shawn Hatosy (Outside Providence
) are pleasant and well groomed (well, except for Hatosy, who bears the brunt of being the poster boy for every fad of the 1990s), and the soundtrack (featuring Cibo Matto, early David Bowie, Yo La Tengo, and others) is excellent. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com
