Storyline

Amy is Jewish, nearing 30, single, and the successful author of "Why Love Doesn't Work," a self-help book for women who aren't in love. She's also a self-described sexorexic - she hasn't had sex with a man in four years and has never had a "mental orgasm." She gets plenty of advice - from her publicist, from her best friends (a married couple), from her parents, and from a priest to whom she goes to confession - so there's lots of conflicting emotion and analysis when she starts dating Matthew Starr, a good-looking playboy who's a popular L.A. male-chauvinist-pig radio shock jock. Each of Amy's theories and rules is put to the test - people may not change, but can love work? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pretty Cute if A Bit Odd at the end
24 December 2003 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I liked this film a fair amount and would have liked it more if the main character had been a little bit more consistent in her actions at the end of the film. Before that, though, I thought there was good chemistry between the two leads, and both of them were very likeable. Nick Chinlund was very good as a romantic lead -- I don't think he normally plays such roles, but maybe people will look twice at him now. The lead actress seemed like someone you could know. Word to the wise: This is definitely a chick flick, -- not that there's anything wrong with that.
