Storyline

Sparks fly and cultures collide in this romantic comedy about a casual night of passion that turns into the love of a lifetime. Alex Whitman is a New Yorker sent to Las Vegas to oversee a construction project. There he meets Isabel Fuentes, and some serious chemistry brings them together for one night. But Alex doesn't see Isabel again until three months later, when he learns she is pregnant. On a whim and prayer, he proposes. However, there's more to marriage than a Vegas chapel and an Elvis impersonator, as Alex and Isabel soon learn. Written by Robert Lynch <docrlynch@yahoo.com>

Adorable love story, Salma and Matthew are wonderful
25 November 1998 | by AdrianeSee all my reviews

I loved this movie and so did my boyfriend, and he doesn't like that many love stories. These two are a great couple on screen, and they would look very cute off as well. Great idea, and the love story was entertaining.
