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.

Highly under-rated, well-done Indie film; delightful!!
15 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is quite a wonderful film. Touching and funny, above the level of most Indie films in terms of script, acting and film-quality. In fact the quality was *very* high, higher than I would ever have expected.

The script is clever, and a great cast only makes it better. Especially Dana Gould, who is perfect for his role! And look for great roles by Kathy Griffin, Ryan Stiles and Ian Gomez before their days on Newsradio and the Drew Carey Show, as well as a fun bit part by SNL cast member Julia Sweeney fresh from her bit role in Pulp Fiction.

There were some glitches, some scenes were a but rough, and Courtney was a bit bland (though her parents were *priceless*!!, but they weren't enough to bring down the film…until the end. The end was a total disappointment, mainly because it was predictable from the beginning of the film that it would end that way, and I was really hoping it would surprise me. A generic, cheezy, schlock ending.

Overall: a great watch, I'd definitely recommend this as a quality Indie film deserving stronger recognition. If it weren't for the ending I'd give it an easy eight, but as it stands: 7/10.
