Storyline

Mal is a New York computer scientist about to lose his university job. He posits that a woman can fall in love with a responsive computer program as easily as with a real man. He finds a subject for the experiment, not telling her what's actually going on. She's Samantha, an actress, and a he finds a rival who calls himself Dr. Love. A women's magazine wants to report the story, but its editor changes the game, insisting that Mal dress up like "Jerry," the personality the computer creates, wear an earpiece, and spout the computer's words. Samantha plays along until her feelings for both "Jerry" and Dr. Love get serious. What's a scientist to do when his hypotheses goes awry? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Enjoyable Romantic Comedy
9 April 2006 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

My wife and I both thought this was a well written enjoyable movie. The dialog was very funny and the actors did a great job with it. We did not know the lead actor Tom Cavanagh, but it is obvious he is going to be well known in the future. If you watch movies to have a good time than this is a movie for you. Judging by some movies we have seen lately, many people watch movies because they need to feel more depressed. If this movie had big names associated with it then it would have had a large gross, assuming that the big names would have done as good a job as the current actors. We see a lot of small (indy?)films with big names that get excellent reviews for horrible movies. The reviewers are obviously faking it. They should have thrown some well deserved good reviews at this one.
