The Ultimate Life Trailer


Jason Stevens now runs a multi-billion dollar company after his wealthy grandfather left him more than just a hefty inheritance in his will. He also left him twelve 'gifts' which persuaded Jason to turn his life around and become a better, more useful, member of society. However, he still seems to have a lot of life lessons to learn as his constant prioritising of work puts a strain on his relationship with Alexia, a doctor who is determined to take a charitable trip to Haiti to work at an underdeveloped clinic there. Unfortunately, Jason misses this completely and panics when he goes home and she's nowhere to be found. He goes to the only person he can think of; Ted Hamilton, the family attorney; who decides to show Jason his grandfather's diary detailing his story of wealth, how it started from nothing and how it ended with nothing.

Boys And Girls Review


Excellent
Boys and Girls plays like a college version of When Harry Met Sally..., with just as much fun and fewer contrivances. Here, the key couple is Ryan and Jennifer, who meet by chance on a plane as pre-teens, and continually bump into one another until their lives bisect at Cal-Berkeley. Ryan, played by Flavor of the Moment Freddie Prinze Jr., is a bright, sometimes awkward engineering student who loves planning and order; Jennifer, Meet Joe Black's Claire Forlani, majors in Latin for no particular reason and aims to travel. Both wish they could apply their positive personality traits to their floundering relationships, but it just doesn't work.

The smart script for Boys and Girls, written by the humbly-credited "Drews", succeeds in part because Ryan and Jennifer nurture their unique friendship for nearly all of the film. While the inevitable Hollywood ending may be in viewers' minds from the get-go, The Drews and director Robert Iscove keep us guessing if this pair might ever connect with each other, and the sweet performances by Prinze and Forlani keep us interested.. The couple's interplay, and the machinations of their separate, frustrating lovelives, are satisfying enough that a sunshiny ending is not required.
