Dorfman In Love tells the story of a young single suburbanite unknowingly trapped in her role as caretaker of her unappreciative family, who desperately needs to get her own life. When she volunteers to cat sit at her unrequited love's downtown L.A loft, her world, as she knows it, changes forever. In seven days, she meets another man who appreciates her and she not only transforms the mess of a loft but also transforms the mess of herself. Her journey of self-discovery leads her to find her true love. (C) Freestyle

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sara Rue delivers a charming and funny turn in this otherwise hopelessly formulaic rom-com."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"The sentiments are heartfelt, but the execution is common."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"It would all be rather unbearable without the effervescent personality of Rue, who is as gifted with selling wacky slapstick as she is the romantic drama."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"Breezy with a charming performance by Sara Rue, but too sitcomish and shallow to rise above mediocrity."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"The film's moral lesson is too contradictory to be taken seriously."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
"Inoffensive to everyone besides the homeless living on L.A.'s skid row, whom Dorfman shies away from like they're soul-sucking dybbuks"
‑ Amy Nicholson, Los Angeles Times
"The story is simple and predictable, harmlessly pleasant (except when it tries to be a little edgy; then it's just silly)."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"The latest in a long line of films to pretend that when a plucky young woman isn't engaged or married, it must be a personal and professional Hiroshima."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"Forced and unfunny portrait of a Young Woman as a Loser."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"The plotting is like uninspired Mad Libs and the premise so slight it's practically transparent. Nor is there much going on visually, beyond Jay's to-die-for loft."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"Brad Leong's "quirky" romantic comedy retreads ground that is already so well worn, everyone just slides right through."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"A romantic comedy about the changes that transform a young woman with low self-esteem."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Sara Rue is charming as the title character in this generous, slightly fizzy character study of a woman on the verge. The story, however, lets her down."
‑ Brent Simon,
