Brian wants to meet Drew. By the end of his movie, we want to meet him.

It's as phony, stupid, lame, and pathetic as any reality show on television.

A reality movie which turns entirely on the likeability of a nerd in heat.

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.

Any film that can make you cringe at its honesty, laugh at its insanity and yet follow along hook line and sinker is something special.

Although charming at times, My Date With Drew comes across as more than a little bit creepy given the present context of celebrity stalkers - not to mention the sight of a middle-aged man fawning over the portrait of a young child.

The film's apparent na´ve charm started working on me until I was hooked by its schleppy hero-filmmaker and its screwy -- borderline stalker -- premise.

Herzlinger comes across as kind of a nebbishy Everyman, except funnier, luckier, and in possession of the most tolerant, supportive friends on the planet.

The result is amusing, although it offers little insight into concepts of fame or fandom.

In equal measures joyous, bumbling and insecure, Herzlinger deftly captures the man-on-the-street appea.

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

In this TV reality show masquerading as a movie documentary, Brian Herzlinger is a creepy voyeur, a run-of-the-mill loser who obsesses about living the celebrity high life but lacks the talent to pull it off.

Herzlinger forges through Hollywood's network of hangers-on and D-list celebrities, merry in his existence as a worthless twit.

In My Date With Drew, the 'Drew' part is a lot more interesting than the 'My' part.

[Barrymore's] radiant, sexy 'n' sweet manner provides a happy heart for this silly little love song of a movie.
