Robert Altman tries the romantic comedy genre in this offbeat and engaging film. It stars fellow Altman alumni Paul Dooley ( A Wedding, O.C. & Stiggs) and Marta Heflin ( Come Back to the Five & Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean) as an unlikely pair matched by a computer dating game. Both give excellent performances. If you are tried of being over saturated with formulaic, predictable Julia Roberts/ Hugh Grant comedies this film is a refreshing change of pace. Unfortunately it has never been issued on video, ( I had to acquire a pirated copy) and rarely screened.
