'Flawless' delves into what love is Charlie Bauman of Glendale works as a janitor at a Glendale printing firm. I liked how "Flawless" developed themes dealing with what real love is and how kindness can overcome the most difficult situations. I also liked the way the director showed the psychological complexity in the relationships of the main characters. Distracting attention from these good things were several poorly developed subplots. But the major reason I ended up not enjoying this movie was that the circumstances of the two main characters' lives were depessing.

Preferring not to talk about the situation and reluctant to address the decision by the school's administration, Murphy instead relayed her feelings in a fax on Friday.

However, although he lives in Rhode Island, Mahoney became a big Sanchez fan and has even started and maintained a Web site devoted to Sanchez -- www.freddysanchez.com. "It all started as a school project," said Mahoney, who attends small Bryant College in Smithfield, R.I. "I had a humanities class and one of our projects was to create and maintain a Web site on a subject that interested us."
