Berkowitz is a rather annoying person.
March 19, 2002

Like an obnoxious four-year-old who believes everything he does is fascinating and adorable, filmmaker Myles Berkowitz likes to announce, at the very start of a first date, that certain foods cause him to suffer from diarrhea or constipation.

Berkowitz went to great trouble to stage, edit, and control certain aspects of his film so that it has a formulaic dramatic structure; one wonders why he didn't make the effort to present himself as a likable human being.

What's so disagreeable about Berkowitz is that he seems to think that his natural tendency towards egotistical self-promotion is an adorable quirk, something that you should be completely taken with even as it makes your skin crawl.

20 Dates may be unpleasant to watch, but despite Berkowitz's icky manners and unwinning calculations, he does find true love.

Whenever 20 Dates begins to establish a playful mood, it's liable to do something to make you squirm.
