Souperior and funny film with a few explicit scenes
26 October 2005 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Allan is a television producer for a far-out cable channel. His friend and partner is an aging lothario. Allan, however, had a police artist sketch the composite of his perfect woman and he is determined to find her. On the long journey of love, Allan has one disastrous date after another, including the one on a restaurant boat. He finds himself leaving in a rowboat and paddling as fast as he can. Nevertheless, he meets his dream woman. She won't have anything to do with him. Is fate unkind?

Saul Rubinek is charming and funny as Allan. He handles all of his dating woes with a wistful humor. Marcia Strassman is also wonderful as the longed-for lady. Yes, there is an R rating attached to this movie for a few sexual scenes that go out of bounds. Hopeless romantics may have to hit the fast button on the remote now and again. The funny script and performers, though, carry this winning film. Try the seek and ye shall find method to get a copy of this loving comedy into your hands today.
