This is not a Movie

And I'm too much of a lady to say what it is! I'm talking about "My Date with Drew." UGH! Please, don't waste valuable time/money on this self-indulgent piece of junk. This actually won HBO Comedy Arts Festival Audience Award, Sonoma Valley Film Audience Award, and New York Gen Art Festival Audience Award. All I can say is, what were these guys smoking?

I agree with the comments of Owen Gleiberman from Entertainment Weekly.

"My Date With Drew is stupefyingly tedious and annoying, since even Herzlinger's fixation on Barrymore comes off as a quasi-sham. What he really craves is a date with fame, a mistress destined to stand him up."

And Kurt Loder's review.

"someone actually says of the whole undertaking, 'The dumbing-down of America is complete.' … Let's at least hope it doesn't get too much dumber than this."

Not convinced yet? How about this one by Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star, More Cream of the Crop?

"this movie may offer all the delight of being slowly dragged by a pickup truck along a stretch of remote rural flat-top."

Whether we write books or movies, we MUST deliver what we promise. In this case the label should be "Pathetic Home Mde Documentary."

It's too late for me, but save yourself. This "movie" is cruel and unnatural punishment, AND they make you pay for it. What cheek!

Doesn't sound like something I'd be interested in seeing, but will consider myself forewarned all the same. Thanks, Babe!
