Storyline

Myles is divorced in L.A. He wants a love life and a film career. So he decides to go on 20 dates and find true love in front of a camera, making his first feature. His patient agent, Richard, finds a $60,000 investor, the shadowy Elie. Myles starts his search, sometimes telling his date she's being filmed, sometimes not. Elie wants sex and titillation, Myles wants it "real." Myles regularly talks with his old film teacher, Robert McKee, who wonders if love is possible in modern life. Half-way through the 20 dates, Myles meets Elisabeth; she's everything he desires and she likes him. Can he finish the 20 dates, satisfy Elie, and complete his film without losing Elisabeth?

Real
2 April 2003 | by (Stevens Point, WI) – See all my reviews

What exactly is everyone's problem with this movie? I just watched it and thought it was great - not just because of the scenes about real dating and love, but because of Myles's attempts to keep his producer and agent happy and make his first film. Two things: First, you don't need to like the lead to enjoy a movie. I liked Myles a lot, and thought he did a fine job, but have liked many movies with leads who weren't at all likable. Second: Everything in this movie seemed real to me. If there is some proof that anyone has that something was scripted or fake, please let me know. I watched it all and it seemed like an honest portrayal of one man's quest to find love and make a movie.
