Movie Info

Abby (Janeane Garofalo) hosts a popular radio show about pets. When Brian (Ben Chaplin) calls in to ask about his quirky Great Dane, the two surprisingly hit it off. Brian pushes for a date with Abby, who is shy and a bit insecure, so she talks her ditzy neighbor Noelle (Uma Thurman) into taking her place. While the confused and oblivious Brian tries to figure out why his date is so different from the host he spoke to, Abby must work up the nerve to confess, as Noelle is also falling for Brian.

    It was ok. Nothing more than that. The phone sex scene was especially awkward.

    Decent gender-reversing modern take on <i>Cyrano de Bergerac</i> with winning performances from all 3 leads. Especially Uma as the sweet-natured but air-headed blonde.

    It had a good premise, an engaging story, but it was exucuted with neolithic incompetence.

    It could happen. Couldn't it?
