This film, like the actress who inspired it, has an appealing sweetness that sneaks up on its viewer.

If this unemployed gofer can land a date with a superstar, maybe there's hope for all of us.

Definitely one of those "stand up and cheer for the little guy" type of films, which probably has old Frank Capra grinning wherever the hell he is.

Interesting enough to follow through to the end. Drew Barrymore is a sweetheart.

This Herzlinger kid is such a dink. Could have been a great movie, but he wasted it.

This is just reality TV, in the form of "reality movie". It does have some charm though.

I really enjoyed this documentary about a plain guy trying to get a date with a superstar. Filmed with a simple video camera and an $1100 budget we get to see… More
