Storyline

If you mixed Ferris Bueller in a blender with Alvy Singer (Woody Allen in "Annie Hall") and Larry David, the result would be SAM BAUM (Josh Gad). He's a lovable, quirky, neurotic NY native, living in LA with his beautiful girlfriend, Sammy (Kristen Ruhlin). A girl he knows how lucky he is to have in his life, since she was previously married to John: a, tall, fit, gorgeous, extremely successful Harvard med school graduate, who she's remained cordial with. Before Sammy, Sam hasn't had much success, romantically. He's an emerging filmmaker with one feature film under his belt that nobody's heard of. And she's an aspiring actress, aching for her big break, which may never come, unless Sam offers her the female lead in his next project, which he does... the night before one of the hottest, most in demand actresses working today, Kim Powers (Hilary Duff), expresses interest in playing the role. Sam wears his heart on his sleeve and has always been honest with Sammy, but now he's caught in ... Written by Some Dude

Better than expected, loud out loud funny
8 April 2012 | by bobxman101See all my reviews

I'd definitely recommend. It's a lot of fun! I DO NOT understand IMDb user ratings. This deserves to be much higher! It says that the weighed average is a 7.8 but the score is a lot lower. Very harsh for such a movie that deserves to be seen for a unique yet fun cinematic experience.

I was fortunate enough to of had the opportunity to attend the premiere of SHE WANTS ME. The theater was pretty much full and the entire audience laughed out loud at least 15 or so times. I wasn't counted, but I know it was well over 10 times. Most of the humor comes from Josh Gad's character especially when he is dealing with his girlfriend's ex-husband (played by Johnny Messner). Messner has a lot of credits, but was a relative new face to me. He did a good job, but his character did have the best lines, so I guess most of the credit should be given to the scribe.

Charlie Sheen has about 3.5 scenes in the movie, totaling about 6 to 7 of the 85 minute running time. Hilary Duff was in 6 scenes, totaling about 12 to 15 minutes or so I'd say. And Newman from Seinfeld (Wayne Knight) was in 2 scenes, totaling about 6 minutes I'd say. Debra Jo Rupp (Mom from That 70's show) was in pretty much every scene with Wayne Knight. They were funny and it was even funnier seeing the rapping granny from Wedding Singer and Wedding Crashers was in this movie too!
