Picks and Pans Review: Boys and Girls

Freddie Prinze Jr., Claire Forlani

Prinze, as a college student slow to find love, repeats the performance he gave in She's All That and Down to You: a sensitive boy-next-door, soft-featured and cute, easily blindsided emotionally—which triggers much wincing. If Leonardo DiCaprio is the teenage girl's ideal of tragic romance, Prinze is the prince of puppy love.

An engineering major, Prinze passes most semesters celibate, unaware that he already has a soulmate in his best female friend (Forlani, who looks like Minnie Driver with flat hair). She too has an intimacy problem, but that doesn't keep her from sleeping around. Only in movieland could two such attractive young people be so oblivious to the frantic signals of their hormones. (PG-13)

Bottom Line: The old Freddie formula
