Storyline

It was at a very young age that Abby found herself experimenting with the gift of art while she practically grew up with her aunt while her parents would travel the world without her. Years later she's living with her friend and co-worker Jessica and has the perfect boyfriend, Sy, who doesn't mind seeing romantic comedies, posing for her artwork, and playing in the snow. But suddenly Abby begins tutoring Jessica's cousin, Quinn, about the world of art and while doing so finds herself torn between what real love is. Can she choose between the perfect boyfriend of her dreams and the fun-loving boy from her humanities class? Written by cestlavie03

This has to be one of my favorite movies
9 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

If you're looking for Oscar level acting and deep, thought-provoking themes, Everything You Want is not the movie for you. I'll just get that out in the open. Nonetheless, it is an excellent movie, with humorous, likable characters, fun and romantic moments, and a good message. Not to mention that it's clean...a rarity in the romantic comedy genre. You could watch this with your kids and not have anything to worry about, with the exception of a mumbled choice word or two.

Abby Morrison (Shiri Appleby) is your typical art student; goes to class, hangs out with her roommate Jessica (Alexandra Holden), paints in her spare time, and works at the local Barnes and Noble. Oh, and she has an imaginary boyfriend named Sy (Orlando Seale). No, Abby is far from ordinary. She created the character of Sy as a child when she got lonely at her Aunt Edna's. Sy has always been the "ideal" boyfriend, going with her to romantic movies and bringing her flowers on no occasion.

Abby's life flips upside down when she meets Quinn (Nick Zano), an annoying law student in her art history class. Through a series of events, Abby ends up reluctantly agreeing to tutor Quinn. I won't spoil any of these reasons in this synopsis, but needless to say, Abby isn't too ecstatic about having to tutor Quinn all semester for a class he hates. But no sooner is she huffing at Quinn's irritating personality than she is getting confused about her feelings for him (and for Sy), blurring the lines between what's real and what's imaginary.

I highly recommend this movie for anyone who enjoys a happy, predictable film. I'm a confessed chick-flick addict, but this movie has more to it than just the simple boy-loves-girl-but-can't-have-her plot. Add to the mix some hilarious characters, including Abby's roommate Jessica and Quinn's roommate Cal (played by a hysterical Will Friedle), and you have a great movie to cuddle up with on a rainy afternoon. You'll get some laughs out of this little-known, wonderful movie. Actually, I rented it once after seeing it on TV and I watched it several times before returning it to the video store. Now I own it!
