Storyline

Jimmy Ravinsky, one of three male roommates, participates in a feminist psychology experiment, being interviewed about male attitudes and behaviors regarding sex and romance by an anonymous woman, "Jane Doe." His experiences reflect upon and change his relationships with Mimi, a woman with whom he has a platonic friendship but desires romance, and Paula, a sexy ex-partner who loves to flaunt her new loves. As these change, so does his relationship with "Jane Doe." Written by James Meek <james@oz.net>

Truly enjoyable
23 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

I must admit that I was drawn to watching this movie only because of the title, which is probably the only inappropriate thing in the whole movie.

A truly wonderful movie with a fine cast covering sexism, feminism, love, relationships ............. Reminded me of "When Harry Met Sally" many times.
