Do you have pets?
Oh, no. No. No, I - I have a fear of perishables. You know - pets, dairy products, produce. Anything that dies, I don't intend to, uh - not for me.

I saw this film at the LA film festival, and enjoyed it, even if it left me pretty much right away.
The plot is one we've seen before, almost a sitcom plot, outgoing girl meets nebbishy guy. It's kind of a cross between an older Woody Allen film and Darhma and Greg, but what makes it enjoyable is the cast.
The two leads are fine, but it's the supporting pros that steal the film with relish whenever they can. Robert Klein, Frances Conroy, Fred Willard all seem to be having a very fun time, and that translates right out into the audience.
I think it was shot on digital instead of film, which makes it kind of different to look at, but not unpleasant at all.
A fun date movie!
