We gave it a B

Zaftig, cautious Min loses her bearings when she meets gorgeous playboy Cal — who approaches only because of a bet with his Neanderthal buds. Source of Angst Cal has trouble stamped on his rock-hard abs, plus Min’s nattering mother won’t let her eat Krispy Kremes. Celeb Cameo None, but Min’s sexy, painstakingly described shoes are red-carpet worthy. Lowdown Predictable and heavy on the psychobabble (one character is a self-help guru), the tale is saved by Min’s earthy realness.
