After Georgia spends the night in bed with Beagle, when she sits up to leave the bed, you can see bra strap marks on her back. Supposedly, she had been naked all night, so she shouldn't have any bra strap marks. See more »

you wanna feel good, watch this movie!!!
26 March 2009 | by nikhil-bopannaSee all my reviews

I have been waiting for this movie from a very long time. Wait is a worthwhile, and i thoroughly enjoyed this one. Mary Stuart Masterson has captured complete concentration from the audience. You can watch this movie if your feeling low or even good.

This movie is about love and relationship. If you are physically unfit, you are not going to loose out of love and its wonderfully portrayed by Kristen Stewart. Overall your heart will float in a sea of joy.

Kristen Stewart is amazing, she takes a through a journey of kind bigheartedness and love. She definitely has a bright future and a long career. The storyline is perfect which contains emotions and humor.

Aaron Stanford is equally good in his own way. A piece of work through which you will fell good for at least a day. Cheers!!!!
