Amy is Jewish, nearing 30, single, and the successful author of "Why Love Doesn't Work," a self-help book for women who aren't in love. She's also a self-described sexorexic - she hasn't had sex with a man in four years and has never had a "mental orgasm." She gets plenty of advice - from her publicist, from her best friends (a married couple), from her parents, and from a priest to whom she goes to confession - so there's lots of conflicting emotion and analysis when she starts dating Matthew Starr, a good-looking playboy who's a popular L.A. male-chauvinist-pig radio shock jock. Each of Amy's theories and rules is put to the test - people may not change, but can love work?Written by
This movie is absolutely dreadful. It was written and directed by one Julie Davis, who also has the ignominy of "starring" in it as the title character. The plot is a bunch of romance / relationship story clichés. The dialogue is stilted and obnoxious. All of the characters speak in the same manner, and their tired psycho-babble monologues all have one obvious source (Julie Davis apparently), and to make matters worse none of it is surprising or new or interesting or original in the least, just a bunch of witless repetition.
This movie is billed as a comedy, but the jokes mostly fall flat. I should have turned the TV off 15 minutes into this thing, but sometimes I get the urge to "rubberneck" at ugly train wrecks like this one, all the while wondering exactly how much money was wasted in producing it, as well as wondering why the "Sundance" channel was airing it instead of a test pattern or an infomercial.
