Storyline

Mal is a New York computer scientist about to lose his university job. He posits that a woman can fall in love with a responsive computer program as easily as with a real man. He finds a subject for the experiment, not telling her what's actually going on. She's Samantha, an actress, and a he finds a rival who calls himself Dr. Love. A women's magazine wants to report the story, but its editor changes the game, insisting that Mal dress up like "Jerry," the personality the computer creates, wear an earpiece, and spout the computer's words. Samantha plays along until her feelings for both "Jerry" and Dr. Love get serious. What's a scientist to do when his hypotheses goes awry? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Disgrace to Film
1 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the worse movies I have ever seen. It reminded me of a bad pilot that never got picked up and instead got crammed into a poor excuse of a film. The story was stupid, the characters were shallow and not likable, and the jokes would not land. If you took Tom Cavanah out of this movie, it would have a below zero rating, but I have to admit he did an OK job considering how horrible the script was. This was the worse thing in the Tribeca Film festival (I saw home videos that turned out better than this). Do not see this movie unless you are a teenage girl who likes sappy, unsophisticated, not believable, and shallow material.
