Atypical ROM-COM made funnier by Janeane Garofalo

This is your average Romantic - Comedy, better writing then most, and the direction is good enough.

What makes this film funnier and better then most romantic - comedies is the talents of the lead Janeane Garofalo. Janeane is one of those actresses and comics you wish you could see more on TV & Film (not in the role of political pundit), but as a leading actress.

Sadly there aren't any roles that will go her way because of superficial reasons, and Hollywood and the audience are missing out.

The film is about Nadine, a date specialist, who has no idea how to date herself. When a former crush, Adam, comes into town, Nadine, has to confront her demons and make Adam fall in love with her. Which is hard to do when you are a girl like Nadine.

If you liked The Truth About Cats & Dogs, and The Matchmaker, you will probably enjoy this film. It is a lot smarter then most romantic - comedies and it doesn't entirely play down to the audience.

The rest of the cast does a fine job. Brad Rowe, the crush, doesn't have much to do as the love interest, but he does try to make his character 3 - dimensional. Which most love interest in other films can never do.
