Storyline

Jewish Jack-the-lad David seriously fancies smart, rich Anglo-Saxon Carrie as soon as he first offends her in a Boston bar. They run into each other again and though she still says she finds him appalling he works on it and they are soon together. His even more reprehensible best mate and her blousy best friend watch bemused as the two fall deeply in love and then apparently as fatally out again. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Would love this quirky movie on DVD
26 April 2009 | by dhgatsbySee all my reviews

I know this is a quirky movie, but i really liked it. it spoke to me when i was in dating mode. for all the titles out there you'd think this would be one of them. please release on DVD. I loved the story lines and there are some really funny, pertinent-to-dating, scenes and story lines. I am not a huge fan of Courtney Cox's acting skills but she does a decent job in this. It also helps that i love Boston/green monster and this takes place there, and they show a lot of good olé Boston landmarks.

Arie gross and k. pollack do a fantastic good cop bad cop along with Julie brown.
