Storyline

Josh is one of those guys who can't navigate the shallow NY singles scene. Not to worry, his two friends Tim and Sean are self proclaimed singles experts who are willing to help their buddy. From bestowing their dating wisdom, to giving their friend a total image make-over these two stop at nothing - including the writing, placement, and interviewing of a personal ad. Weeding out the three "right ones" or at least what they deem the most appropriate proves to be a monumental experience, even for these two. In the meantime, Josh applies some of his newly acquired wisdom coupled with his own honest approach on Doreen - a woman his two buddies have deemed out of his league. Indeed, it appears that all of his advances go unnoticed on this lovely but embittered singled mom. Of course love does triumph in the end, but it is found by the heart and only after the age-old adage of "to thine own self be true" is learned by one and all. Written by Anonymous

Some things to see
8 March 2008 | by fb00See all my reviews

Well, I'm not cinema professional, so I have no right to judge how actor plays, how camera works and so on. But in general this movie made me feel positive (what happens not so often). Of course, this movie is quite simple, but it contains positive example of communication between man and woman, small pickup lesson and interesting behavior patterns (there are some things to model, in terms of NLP). For me it is interesting to see how people can behave to be interesting, so if you're looking for the girl of your dream, this movie is good to tune up yourself for successful and positive communication with woman. And it is also pleasant to see (for guys like me) how guy from 'lover league' have success with girl from 'upper league'. For me, this move contains more positive charge, than many high-rated movies. Moreover, I like soundtrack.
