Storyline

Henry Orient is a madly egocentric and overly amorous avant-garde concert pianist who is hilariously pursued all around New York City by two 14-year-old fans. The girls, Val and Gil chase a harassed Henry all over the city, thwarting his afternoon liaisons with a married woman and leaving utter chaos behind them - until Val's sexually promiscuous mother appears on the scene to put a stop to the girls' shenanigans.

They don't make 'em like this anymore
19 July 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is the first movie I saw as a teenager that adequately captured the feeling of a first crush on an adult. The friendship between Gil and Val is both sweet and enduring, and I only wished I had been so fortunate.

The ensemble cast is superb and the humor is as funny today as it was then. I wish there were more movies like this!
