Storyline

When it comes to romance, Missy's attitude has always been whatever. After all, her artistic career is flourishing...her spacious New York City loft is fabulous...and her relationship with a married man is totally uncomplicated-what more could a modern girl want? But then Missy meets Brat, who's sweet, genuine and shares her fondness for 70's sitcoms. Unfortunately, he's also dating her pal Spaz. When Missy and Brat unexpectedly fall for each other, will she lose her identity...and her best friend? No matter how far you run, true love always finds you.

new love.
29 January 2003 | by xpunkadooziexSee all my reviews

Originally I had never heard of this movie until (being the broke college student that I am) one day I was in Best Buy and decided to check and see if there were any movies in the cheap section(9.99 and under) that might catch my eye. Well as soon as I saw that Cynthia Nixon and Andy Dick were starring in it, I thought how can I not buy it? Not to mention the "institution of a man" that we get to see naked, Timothy Olyphant(dont worry its not full frontal, shucks)..Well now it is somewhat of a new obsession. I watch it at least once a week with my friends. Awesome movie. I can not see how you don't consider this a comedy, there are various times in the movie were I find myself laughing histerically.. are we forgetting the whole rowboat scene, let alone numerous others.. unless I am just easily amused. Anyways, I think this was one of Andy's most endearing roles, and makes me even more of a fan. Personally I'd have to give this film the two thumbs up.
