Response to Peary’s Review:
As Peary notes, this slice-of-life romantic comedy has “moments of undeniable charm, as well as believable performances from leads who are [a] welcome change from Hollywood types.” But I disagree with Peary that the film is “almost ruined” by its “self-conscious direction” — nor do I necessarily think, as Peary does, that there’s “too much roller-skating!”
I found this low-budget sleeper (filmed in Minneapolis) particularly appealing because — like more and more people lately — I met my husband on the internet (after a series of bad blind dates), and thus can relate to both the humor and the agony of Bill’s situation.

No, but it’s recommended.
