Storyline

Filmmaker Nick has decided to make a documentary about his best friend Courtney's love life. Courtney, a schoolteacher, has had a two-year on and off relationship with a guy who can't commit; she's also tried video-dating and a women's group. She never thought she'd have a problem finding the right guy and falling in love, but as she gets closer and closer to 30 she gets more and more desperate. Nick, on the other hand, is having as much trouble finding the right girl, and when his true feelings for Courtney come to light, they have to decide whether or not to stay just friends.

Consistently funny yet overlooked indie
12 November 1998 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This film really won me over with its consistently snappy dialogue and likable characters. It was really great to see so many familiar young comedians given a chance to strut their stuff in a movie, people like Dana Gould and Kathy Griffin. (before her network TV breakout) I watched these people on those seemingly endless comedian showcase TV programs in the late eighties and early nineties and actually remembered some of them. When I caught this film while pre-screening for a film festival, I thought I would definitely be hearing about it again. But, no distributors or major festivals picked it up and it made its way quietly to video.

It is by no means perfect, however. The documentary filmmaker approach is pretty hackneyed and since little is made of it during the course of the film, is seems superfluous. Also, the female lead comes off as bland when compared to the comic zest of the other performers. Still, I have to say, there were genuine laughs for me in almost every scene, which I certainly can't say of most of the dreadful "dating in the nineties" romantic "comedies" that have been clogging up the market recently. Hopefully, this film will get its due in video distribution.
