Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story isn't really about Wyatt buying the flute; it's about him getting over his unhealthy obsession with his ex-girlfriend. The point where Rocio opens the door is priceless.

Con: Of course the story isn't really meant to be serious, but Wayne is a neurotic mess, and we get tired of him very fast.
