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.

An evening's worth of smiles and sighs
5 August 2003 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Nick (Dana Gould) announces to the viewer that he's about to make a documentary of the love life of his best friend, Courtney (Eliza Coyle). She is a single woman living in the Los Angeles area and she's about to turn thirty (ugh!) As the supposed documentary begins, Courtney is just ending an on-again, off-again relationship with her live-in boyfriend. The search for true love continues. Nick follows Courtney's next ventures as she tries video dating and becomes part of a therapy group for singles. No romance blooms from these attempts; they are profound failures. Will Courtney find her way to an engagement ring?

This sweet pseudo-documentary is clever and diverting. Nick is an acute observer and gives a humorous, running commentary on Courtney and her exploits. Courtney, too, is attractive and likeable; one hopes she will be able to meet her match. Adding much to the overall enjoyment of the film is the therapy group; they spout comments that are quite funny. The end of the film may be easy to guess but it is satisfying nonetheless. Although the film 20 Dates may be a slightly better realized film in the same category, Courting Courtney will appeal to the romantic in all of us. Recommended for an evening's worth of smiles and sighs.
