Billed as 'a romantic comedy for people who hate romantic comedies,' there's little here in this unremarkable film that's special enough to alter anyone's opinion.

Surprising little romantic comedy that shows Garofalo could be a very charming movie actress if she wanted

There are two reasons to see "The Matchmaker" and neither involves the two characters at the center of this far-fetched romantic comedy.

Garofalo's good, but the Celtic charm is laid on way too thick.

A light-hearted comedy with just the right blend of Irish blarney and romantic reversals.

Perfectly affable, and there are some good laughs.

has nothing to do with the story that was later made into 'Hello, Dolly.' ... 'Hello, Blarney' might have been a better title.
