Now, 20 years later he’s decided to try to fulfill his lifelong dream by asking her for a date. There's one small problem: She's Drew Barrymore and he's, well, Brian Herzlinger, a broke 27-year-old aspiring filmmaker from New Jersey. But that doesn't stop Brian and his film school pals from doing everything they can think of to convince Barrymore to go out with him – and documenting their quest along the way.

    Any film that can make you cringe at it's honesty, laugh at it's insanity and yet follow along hook line and sinker is something special.
  2. The documentary My Date with Drew is "Don Quixote" meets "Bowfinger" meets "Swingers" for the reality-TV generation.
  3. There are times, to be sure, when Herzlinger's antics threaten to swing from cute to cloying. But the few missteps are gently redeemed by an unexpectedly charming finish.

    Walks such a fine line between what separates dreamer from stalker, that the film he made about it ellicits a variety of responses.

    When our hero finally does get his moment in the sun--c'mon, would someone have bought the movie if he didn't?--My Date With Drew offers the surreal spectacle of pursuer and pursued pleasantly gabbing, obliviously immersed in a mutual PR stunt.
  6. As his movie-in-progress goes along, his pursuit of a childhood dream looks increasingly like an excuse by a canny aspiring filmmaker to create a work sample.
  7. Stupefyingly tedious and annoying.

I confess that I used the fast forward VERY liberally till I got to the actual date. The date was anticlimactic. Save your time. This movie was just plain bad. Expand
