This sexy, teen-comedy is about a freshman, Matthew, at college who meets his dream girl in a dorm elevator during a blackout. He never sees her face, but instantly falls in love. In the morning, the power is restored, but the "dream girl" has vanished. All Matthew knows is that she lives in an all-girls dorm. He sets out on a semester-long journey to find his mystery girl amongst a hundred female suspects. Could it be Wendy? Dora? Arlene? Patty? Cynthia? Or the 95 other girls, any of whom could have been in that elevator with Matthew. Written by
In the film, Rod suffers from a medical condition called hypospadia. This is a real medical condition where the urethra tract is misaligned and opens on the penis at somewhere other than the tip. It is most common in males and usually corrected within the first year of life. See more »

There are a lot of clichés in this film, but some of the bits in it are funny and sometimes downright interesting (while others really horrible). It is also nice to see the girls who would later become Hollywood's sweethearts, like Jaime Pressly, Katherine Heigl, Emmanuelle Chriqui or Larisa Oleynik.
The story is that of a guy who meets - and loses his virginity to - a girl in an elevator, in complete darkness. He wakes up in the morning to find the girl gone and himself at a loss about her identity. Surely enough, he embarks on a journey to discover who she is from a girl dormitory of 100 suspects.
The good part was the idea that each girl was different, as indeed was every male character in the film. The bad part is the condescending perspective on boy/girl relationships and the "problems" in them. Also it was fantastically insulting to see a film pretending to be sensitive to girl needs, then present Marissa Ribisi as the ugliest possible girl. I bet there was a spike in suicides in America after this film was released.
Anyway, the film is light, the mystery obvious and possibly the only thing making it watchable (aside from the youthful shapes of lovely girls) was the lead, Johnathan Tucker, whose goofiness was perfect for the role. Some introspective insights into the nature of intimacy were the strengths of the film, while the character of Crick and every story arch related to him were absolutely horrid.
Bottom line: a watchable romantic movie, too simplistic and formulaic to appeal to any adult, but probably offering a few lessons for very young viewers. I don't recommend it, but I didn't hate it either.
