    "I can say that this is the reason why I loved best friends turned to lovers storyline. A classic that started the question if woman and man can be really just friends. Highly recommended!!!"

    "Every time I heard the song Can't Take My Eyes Off You, it always been Patrick Verona's voice I want to hear. This man could sing in the middle of the school and slowly melted the cold heart of Kat Stratford. "

    "Great movie. But right off the bat I've got to take off one star for the fact that it's a bit formulaic in that it reunites Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. I'm sure some big wigs in Hollywood if they could would have had these two doing nothing but rehashing themselves in movies over and over again for ever if it was profitable enough."
