My Date with Drew (**1/2)

Clever and desperate at the same time, this is a not-so-great documentary that succeeds despite itself because of an intriguing storyline. Can one man get one date with his longtime crush, Drew Barrymore, when he's never even met her and has no real contacts with her? Add in a 30 day deadline, and a $1200 budget, and the stakes are significantly raised. I was entertained by this movie, but the filmmakers don't show any real filmmaking talent. You or I could make a documentary that's just as professional. Fans of Drew Barrymore should definitely check this one out though.
