Herzlinger and his film school pals, who co-produced and co-directed the movie with him, do everything they can to help the dream come true. That includes "buying" a video camera from Circuit City (which they intend to return within the permitted 30-day store policy) and trying to crash the "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" premiere party so Herzlinger can actually speak to the object of his affections.
After awhile, the film becomes less about whether Herzlinger will get the date with Drew and more about getting an honest sense of the man, his relationships and his dreams. Though "My Date with Drew" is occasionally trite and never quite surmounts its reality TV gimmick, it's also lots of fun. Herzlinger is one personality you'll want to see more of in the future. Directed by Brian Herzlinger, Brett Winn and Jon Gunn. Produced by Brian Herzlinger, Brett Winn, Jon Gunn and Kerry David. A DEJ release. Documentary. Unrated. Running time: 90 min
