A sweet and all but forgotten film
18 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was living in the Twin Cities when this film premiered, and it was just a pleasant, humorous, and sometimes poignant adventure of one man's journey through the world of the personal ads. There's some great scenery showing off the Minneapolis parks & lakes system, and I seem to recall some great music throughout the film (anyone remember Nicolette Larson?). I found a used VHS copy of this film some years later and snatched it up. Unfortunately, I've managed to misplace it over time. I was lucky enough to run into Bill Schoppert, the lead actor in the film, at a local health club shortly before I left Minneapolis, and we got to chat about the film briefly. Talking about it put a smile on both of our faces. It'd be wonderful to catch this film on some late night channel so I could reminisce.
