This was the best movie i have ever seen. It showed a real relatioship and asked a serious question, does love always conquer all. The acting was incredible and so is the soundtrack.

although it does not seem like a movie for freddie, it has some true meaning behind it. for instance they felt they were to young to be involved and they wanted to have fun - but  - you cannot fool around with true love and soul mates. in this world, everyone has a soul mate and although the movie could have had more oomph in it - deep down it touches the right place and sends it message

This is the sweetest movie i've ever seen! my bf and i saw it together... It's really a perfect date movie. as soon as it came out, i rented it and watched it over and over and over and over! Julia and Freddy made the perfect couple, and it shows that love is more important than anything. (it also gives a good depiction of how sweet guys really are!) I plan on getting this movie, because i know it's gonna be my favorite for a long time!

This movie reminded me somewhat of me and my boyfriend.  I thought it was the most amazing movie and I believe that Freddie Prince Jr. and Julia Stiles made the perfect couple.    I love the movie and I'm going to run right out and buy it. I recommend it "A must see"

comments = Ok, Beth or who ever you are, there was a plot and the climax was not when she thought she was pregnant, it was when freddie and Julia because she had cheated on him!  Maybe you should get the facts staight before you go dissing the BEST MOVIE EVER!  It was sweet and romantic yet realistic.  Good job!  I hope to se another one like it soon!

comments = I think Freddie Prince Jr and Julis Stiles were both perfect for the movie. I think that they really are that romantic in real life. Their acting are very natural. For me Freddie prince is reflection of a real romantic, understanding, kind and a very sweet person, that's why i love he's character in his movies!!!

I think Down To You was the best romantic/comedy movie I have seen in a while. I think the people picked the two most greatest actors to play in that movie. They both did a good job, and I hope there would be more movies to come out with them in it. I saw it about two times and Freddie Prinze Jr. did a very good job singing  at the end. :)

This movie was great from all angles! Though it was slightly predictable... aren't all movies though? From a comedic angle it was good! It was romantic too! This is a perfect love story especially with hot Freddy Prinz Jr. and beautiful Julia Stiles! It's definately worth seeing!

I saw this movie and i thought that it was a really good movie. I think that all the people in it are really good actors and deserve some award. i would suggest that everyone should go to the movies and see this cause it is a good teenage film and very sweet and funny

Beth 
score = 40 
This movie was lacking in something which I consider a pretty important factor in a movie- a plot. Hello? the climax was when she thought she was pregnant which lasted like 30 seconds until she found out she wasn't. It started pretty well, although Freddies narrative was pretty cheesy, and I thought I was going to really enjoy it but there was absolutely no development. The characters are strong and the acting is good but if it wasn't for Freddie I would have left after a half hour. The end could not have been worse and I came out feeling unsatisfied. Not a good movie.

One of my favorites. A definite must see film for the year. great teenage movie and perfect for a date. I give it two thumbs up!

Shelley

I just saw this movie and I think that this movie is so far from reality.  It was so cheesy I needed crackers. It was horrible, I kept on waiting for the movie to get better but it only got worse. If I had 10 thumbs they would be pointing down for this movie

I thought that it was a really great movie with and excellent cast of characters, and it really portrays the tragic stories of first loves. A must see!!!!!!

John Carr

It was sort of a chick flick, but funny at times.  I liked the college theme and Julia Stiles is butter!

leslie mayer 
score = 10 
I thought Freddie and Julia had no chemistry together.  The script was full and it was very boring.  There were no "good" scenes.  I would give this movie 10 points just because Freddie Prinze Jr. is HOT!

KIMBERLY

This movie is a definite must see on my list.  It was so wonderfully romantic and cute!  A perfect date movie!  Not to mention Freddie Prinze Jr. looks so hot and Julia Stiles looks very pretty too!

I hated the movie.  I expected better.  The dialogue was soooo dumb. I like Freddie Prinze Jr. a lot but this movie was a major bomb and a waste of my time and money.

When I saw this movie I cried it was so touching and good. This movie was awesome! All the actors and actresses did unbelievably great.

MEGAN

I loved Freddie and Julia was good too. But 10 things I hate about you is still my fav. Sorry guys. But see this movie because it's still good and it takes place in NYC.

Kris

I had very high hopes for this movie, but was utterly disappointed. I knew it would be a typically teen flick, which i have always enjoyed in the past.  I liked the actors in past movies, but this definately wasn't them at their best.  I thought this movie lacked a strong plot.  It seemed to drag on and I found myself constantly checking my watch.  It was a good movie to make fun of the over dramatic acting.  The movie was quite dull and predictable.  My friends and I left the movie before it had even ended.  I wish it would have been better!!!

I loved the movie, i saw it last night and it was so perfect. i personally loved it because the story line was just so amazing and so real. The characters made the movie so rreal. i thought the movie was so cute the way it ended. For sure i'm going to buy the video.

100 may be a bit much, but that movie is perfect. it is now my new favorite movie and i can watch it over and over.  its so real and the actors and actresses did a great job.

Kate

This is the first movie that anyone who has had a relatonship with someone could relate to. The ups and the downs that Al and Imogen went through is just like the ones in real life. I thought this movie was great and definately a must see for those who know what it's like to be with somone you love.

Becca 
score = 100 
The reason I give this movie a 100 is because I think it's a movie that people would want to see over and over again.

I'm not one of those people who gets obsessed over movies, and just have to see it everyday. This movie though, is exceptional. This will be my sixth time to see it since it came out. I also think this movie is great for all couples, young and old. Plus Freddie Prinze Jr. is FINE!!!!

JENNIFER

I just saw it this weekend, and I was sorely disappointed. I was expecting a really great movie, what with such awesome actors, but the story really got in the way of their acting. The dialgue was unrealistic, the developement of the different relationships was weak, and the plot just didn't flow. The reason I gave it such a high score was because of the actors. Julia Stiles is awesome and Freddie Prinze, Jr is a cutie and a great actor. I just can't wait for them to come out with another movie so I can erase this one from my memory.

Serena

Julia Stiles and Freddie Prinze Jr. are great.  They settled the score and did a great show together!

I just saw "Down To You" recently and It was awesome!  The is the reality of being a teenager in society today.  It was great.  a definite must see!

Don't let Mr. Showbiz or the Herald determine whether or not you see this movie. If you saw Julia Stiles in 10 Things I Hate about You and u saw Freddie Prinze jr. in she's all that and YOU think they are good actors then see this movie! It's a cute and romantic story and so what if it has a happy ending. People think if movies have happy endings that they are unrealistic and therefore bad but that is not true.  First of all not all things in life end up badly and second of all who the hell goes to the movies to get a taste of real life anyways.  Don't we read books, watch t. v. shows, and go to the movies to escape reality and live vicariously through the characters that we see and read about.  I think the movie was worth seeing and i would pay to see it again.

Lora 
score = 100 
I think this was a great movie, but it is more centered towards a younger audience.  It displays a a young couple coping with each otehr as their first loves.  I thought they each portrayed great people and it was pretty similar to what my first love was.

I love the movie , Iwas so caught up in to it , it was as though I was Julia Stiles , and I wish was her, And if you didn't like it then there is something wrong.

Machelle

I thought it was good but it could have had a better ending like them getting married and her ending up being pregnant i could have been 10 times better

Amy

I think it was a cute movie, not great, but cute.  It gave me butterflies in my stomach it was sOoOo sweet.  It is the kind of movie that makes you feel fuzzy and makes you want a boyfriend.  If you are looking for more than a fun, cute movie~don't see this one.

The movie was awesome. I have never been so influenced by a movie before.It was so powerful. I loved it soo much. It made me realize i was way too young to think about settling down. I now want to go to NYU and graduate there instead of moving in with a boyfriend right out of high school. I loved it. I love Freddie and Julia!!!!

I adored watching this movie.  It's so sweet, but at the same time, it depicts what ordinary couples go through in every day relationships.  Also, Freddie Prinze is such a hottie..

I give this movie a 100 because it is the best movie I ever saw.  I only saw this movie twice, but it felt like I was seeing it for the first time after the second time I saw it.  I think that almost everyone should see it, it was that good.

A sappy, plottless teenager haven with diologe that's so bad, you almost cna forget about the awful directing. Kris Isacsson most likely thought that if one decides to get two of the top list in every teeie-boopers' list, everyone will love it! Think again Kris! Try to spend less time on the tight cloths and sex scenes, and more time on the actual story. (aka plot)  I'm a hopeless romantic, but this had me groaning in pain. ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES OF 2000. BE MORE REALISTIC PEOPLE! LOOKS ARE NOT EVERYTHING! I think Jean Sicscal rolled over in his grave. Angelle
