Storyline

The lives of three lifelong buddies in a small New England fishing town will never be the same after The Week That Girl Died, a touching romantic comedy about finding Ms. Right-at all the wrong times. Vinnie (Erik Palladino) bumps into the attractive Jessie(Brigitte Bako) at his uncle's wake, and when his aunt mistakes her for his latest girlfriend, she gladly plays the part-leaving out one small detail. Jimmy(Robert Longstreet) sets his sights on the seedy part of town-only to find love (Justina Machado) waiting for him in the least likely of places. And Ralph (Patrick Fischler) woke up a virgin on Friday morning only to have that situation reversed two times over by Saturday night. With an original score by jazz musician Kevin Eubanks (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno) "The Week That Girl Died" takes the notion of the romantic comedy and gives it a dose of what real people go through.

A smart, funny and well executed slice of life comedy.
10 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

If you can find it, see it, `The Week that Girl Died' is a smart, funny and well executed slice of life comedy. Quite simply, it's a true sleeper hit that won't let you down. One problem, it is hard to find. I caught this movie at a film festival in Chicago a couple of years ago, and then saw it again at a New York screening, as part of a series. This romantic comedy is a story of friendship, love, lust and family, (not specifically in that order). It is charming, funny, and most of all honest and believable. The cast of up and coming actors can already be seen regularly on TV and in theaters; most notably Erik Palladino, Justina Machado, and Patrick Fischler. All other actors do a nice job of portraying these realistic and sometimes quirky characters, there were solid performances all around. My hat goes off to Rocco V. Iacovone and Sean Travis, they make a solid writer/director team who seemed to be going in the same direction, (something rare these days). Also, I have a feeling one day we will know the names of some of the lesser known actors, specifically Robert Longstreet and Shana O'Neil who portrayed their flawed characters to near perfection.
