Best part of story, including ending: It is fun to see the word play between the sexes and how it leads to sex and then romance.

Best scene in story: When Danny brings the dog for Debbie because it is very nice.

Opinion about the main character: The guys are horn dogs in this movies and there is not much point changing that, except for Danny who truly falls in love with Debbie.
