Adore romantic comedy? Try this sweet film
22 November 2004 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Leila (Shalom Harlow) is a muffin shop owner with a sad past. As an innocent 20 year old, her fiancé failed to show up on their wedding day. Since then, she merely exists with her dog, Paxil, never venturing into another romantic attachment. However, she does want to become a mother and visits a new gynecologist to determine if her organs are working properly. Somewhat smitten, the physician tries to discourage Leila from the auditions she plans to hold to find a father for her potential offspring. Is a sperm donor the closest thing to true love that Leila will find?

This sweet, sweet movie has attractive leads and a humorous script. While the overall concept of the film may be far-fetched, the audience won't quibble with it's presentation. The setting and costumes are quite wonderful, also. If you and your friends pant over kisses and laughs in the search for true love, get the gang together and have a giggle and sigh fest.
