This is a small independent movie, based on a play written by the director. It is cute and heartwarming. (Premise - Jewish girl doesn't want to tell her parents that she's dating someone who is not Jewish, so she hires an actor to pose as her Jewish boyfriend.) The movie takes place in Chicago. Some of it was filmed locally, and it shows a pretty side of the city. The plot has several cliches, but as far as I'm concerned that's OK. There were a lot of laughs from the audience, and I have to confess that I found much of the dialogue amusing. For me, the funniest part was when the main character is driving to visit her parents and there is a drive by shot of the Village of Skokie sign. Ha!

Great date movie. If you want a good clean date movie to snuggle and laugh through then may I suggest Beau Jest. I am not sure clean was the other reviewers idea of fun. It is for me and I give this movie the nod of approval.
