Storyline

Matty and Alan are old friends. Alan wants to be a writer, meanwhile he's a teacher, and wants Matty, a long time friend, to be more than a friend. She doesn't exactly know what she wants, other than being in show business (her mother is less than enthusiastic). Written by Jonathan <jrd@netvision.net.il>

It's When Alan Met Matty, it's Laverne and Meathead, it's two great directors in the 80's before they were great directors and she got a cigarette voice

He's a Harry, she's hysterically funny. It's very like When Harry Met Sally... They live in new York, meet every couple of years. Friends, more than friends? He rambles, likes baseball, even sings from Oklahoma!. She likes to cuddle, she slaps him, she calls him at night and he rushes to her. You cannot hear Billy Crystal during the fortune cookie scene.

Penny Marshall is wonderful. Sarcastic jokes, the best delivery, they make a great team. Just a fun TV movie, successfully captures the years it's set in. Wonder why so few have seen it...
