In this updated and gender-reversed variation on Cyrano de Bergerac, Janeane Garofalo stars as Abby, the host of a radio talk show for people who have problems with pets. One day, she gets a call from Brian (Ben Chaplin) who is having trouble with his Great Dane (who enjoys roller skating). After a few minutes on the phone, Brian is immediately taken with Abby, and she's certainly interested in him. However, while Abby is not unattractive, she's terribly self-conscious about her appearance. When

Though its romantic-comedy triangle borrows heavily from Cyrano de Bergerac, the film has more in common with Three's Company.
Rom-com charmer with a smart script and Garofalo in top form.
Janeane Garofalo's magnetic yet unconventional presence instantly pulls the audience into the story.
Better than it looks ... but not by much.
Since when is Garofalo less appealing than Thurman?
A spry and perceptive romantic comedy highlighted by the spirited performance of Garofalo's self-deprecating guise
This sly update on Cyrano de Bergerac owes a lot to Janeane Garofalo, who inexplicably disowned it.
Delightful romantic comedy with some incisive obervations about sexual politics, beauty and self-esteem.
Sometimes sad, sometimes uplifting. This is a heady meditation on the trials of modern romance.
