Trust me, it's not worth buying.

Like Brian, I have had something I've wanted for a really long time, and like Brian (yes, that's another like), I'm really cute and I ought to get what I want, right?
E. Sandy Powell
Brian is surprisingly candid and realistic about his situation and his own flaws--which makes the viewer root for him.

I loved My Date with Drew. Yes, it's a documentary, but it is very funny and personable and even a little bit inspirational. We all had crushes on celebrities during our youth (and some of us, as adults, still do), and we all dreamed of meeting the superstar objects of our affections. At 27, Brian Herzlinger still had a life-long crush on Drew Barrymore. When he won eleven hundred bucks on a game show (with Drew Barrymore as the winning answer - that's fate, that is), he decided to use the money to pursue a dream - his dream of a date with Drew. Yes, seeing as how he was unemployed at the time, he probably should have used the money for more practical things - bills, for example - but the guy had a dream and he went for it (which is more than a lot of us can say). Thanks to a retailer's policy of letting you return purchases after thirty days, he got himself a camera, assembled all of his friends, and filmed his efforts to win a date with Drew within 30 days. Is it possible for a nobody to get a date with one of the most famous people on the planet? The odds were definitely against him. The ups and downs of his personal quest certainly make for a uniquely entertaining experience, one which most of us can identify with in a number of ways.

Brian was a nobody, but he wasn't as big a nobody as, well me, for example. As an aspiring filmmaker, he was already out there in Hollywood fluttering around the fringes of the business, he knew several people with movie-related jobs and a range of connections, and he had a great network of friends who supported him as well as helped him with the technological aspects of the whole documentary he was making on the experience.

I got this movie/documentary out of my local video store not really knowing what it was about. It's one of those movies u think o.k there's nothing else on the shelf I'll give it a go, but within the first 10 mins I was laughing and thoroughly enjoying my Date with Drew. It's often hilarious, verrry quirky (which I love) and just a cool concept really, yes he's idealistic but most of us kids from the 80's are, blame it on the cheesy but genuis sitcoms and inspirational family movies we grew up with, and a lot of us late 20 and early 30 somethings r still searching for that elusive dream whatever it may be. It may have been for him to search out his celebrity crush, but the message of just going for your dream no matter what was very cute and I think rather inspirational, Drew Barrymore is one of my fav actor's as well so I was soooooooo happy at the end when they finally got to meet, she was just as genuine and sweet as one would think she was and I believe she was trully touched in a sweet way (and not in a freaked out I'm meeting a crazy fan/stalker way) that he made this movie/documentary about her, and it was obvious that she saw the bigger picture behind this movie/documentary and the message of following one's heart and making our dreams come true which is what she herself portrays in a lot of her own movies especially those made within her own company. It seems by the other reviews that there is no in between u either hate this or love this for whatever reason is up to u, and I don't think the film techniques are really an issue u take it for what it is, it's the bigger picture, the message that u get from this movie if one at all that u should really come away with.Read more ›

First let me begin by saying that I didn't want to waste my time viewing this film. Why would I want to sit through a true life documentary film about an obsessive-compulsive twenty something fan still suffering from a childhood crush with an actress (Drew Barrymore) I didn't really like anyway. The only reason I did was because my daughter wanted me to watch it with her, so it was one of those quality time together opportunities I simply couldn't pass on.

With that all said I must now admit that I actually ended up enjoying the low-budget '03 movie, `My Date with Drew.' The main reason for this unexpected change in opinion was the star of the film, the obsessive-compulsive playing himself, Brian Herzlinger. Watching him experiencing the full range of human emotions in his quest for his dream date was an absolute delight.

The film also reveals a delightful glimpse into the quirky machinations of the Hollywood lifestyle and the all important process of discovering "who knows who" as he assembles a string of personal connections that will ultimately lead to a face to face introduction with his beloved Drew. Watch Brian and his group of co-conspirators comb the entertainment industry in search of a way to contact the elusive star. Radio interviews, billboards, websites, endless phone calls and fake backstage passes to private parties lead the viewer on a dizzying chase as time and money evaporate and all appears lost.

Definitely worth a viewing and just think how much more you'll enjoy it if you happen to be a Drew Barrymore fan.
