Myles is divorced in L.A. He wants a love life and a film career. So he decides to go on 20 dates and find true love in front of a camera, making his first feature. His patient agent, Richard, finds a $60,000 investor, the shadowy Elie. Myles starts his search, sometimes telling his date she's being filmed, sometimes not. Elie wants sex and titillation, Myles wants it "real." Myles regularly talks with his old film teacher, Robert McKee, who wonders if love is possible in modern life. Half-way through the 20 dates, Myles meets Elisabeth; she's everything he desires and she likes him. Can he finish the 20 dates, satisfy Elie, and complete his film without losing Elisabeth?

Pretty Good, But Wait for the Video
24 March 1999 | by DVDMan-2See all my reviews

20 Dates is enjoyable for what it is: a semi-documentary. It seems as if Berkowitz started out with a good idea but it was corrupted a bit along the way. The big tip-off that this isn't REAL life is that 2 women who have appeared in Playboy make brief appearances. If you really want to see it, catch a matinee or wait for the video.
