    Such a fun movie!!! Fantastic cast and lots of laughs. An inspiringstory told beautifully, with an insider's peek at the coolest places indowntown LA.

    If you live in LA or ever intend to visit and haven't seen this movie,you are seriously missing out.

    I've lived in LA my whole life and was so excited to learn about hiddengems I never knew about before.

    And the chemistry between Elliot Gould and Sara Rue is terrific. Gouldis hysterical, as always, and Rue comes out of her shell like neverbefore.

    Highly recommend. Good times for all.

    I'd say I wasn't expecting much from this movie, and somewhatconflicting reviews of the movie did not help on the matter either. Buteventually I am happy I did watch Dorfman since I enjoyed it tons. Thestory in the movie is simple and maybe even somewhat of a cliché, butsince I do not need my romance and feel-good movie fixes to be overlycomplicated, this easy to stomach story did work for me quite well. Asimple setting of a young gray mouse type of a woman getting her chanceto prove to a guy she is secretly in love with for many years thatshe's the one for him, turns out to be more of a journey to her ownself discovery and for once love and being loved in return. Looking fora nice romantic movie for the evening, why not try Dorfman, you mightfind a little gem here

    I'm sorry for my grammar - English is not my mother language :) Well Ireally liked the movie. I decided to watch it because there was myfavourite actress - Sara Rue. She did a really amazing job! She was socharming in that movie. I love her acting. The move is really nice, agood movie for a winter evening. It's not a "stupid American romanticcomedy". It's a nice movie, I enjoyed it so much. It was really cool tosee how Debb changed from little, shy girl to a brave woman with higherself esteem. I recommend this movie to everyone :) It's great! Btw: I'mfrom Poland. The joke about Poland and polish people in the movie mayoffend someone but I'm not really offended by it. It's just becausethere's a stereotypical thinking in the USA about Poland (I've heardsimilar jokes in many American TV series..).

    Sara Rue is the best actress ever! :)

    I really enjoyed watching Dorfman in Love. I could kind of relate withthe main character as being quirky and a little insecure. The story wasvery realistic unlike many love stories that seem so extreme.

    It was a feel good movie that in the end puts a smile on your face.Being a native Californian, it was nice to see the revamped DowntownLos Angeles area being displayed throughout the film. The music wasfitting and from local Californian artists.

    I would definitely recommend having a girls' night in and enjoying thisfilm.

    The film was well written and executed!

    I fully agree with Salsa Boy from San Francisco. I saw this movie lastnight through the D.C. Jewish Film Festival. Elliott Gould did the besthe could with a script that was one-dimensional at best, and, at worst,rehashed the worst sort of Borscht Belt stereotypes (to wit, "We Jewsdon't paint, we HIRE painters..."). Through most of the movie, I feltlike I was watching cartoon characters (awkward girl with lowself-esteem; brother who's an insensitive jerk; father who's superkvetchy), though it did get stronger toward the end. Thetheme--self-discovery and transformation--was a worthy one, but handledclumsily and in eminently disbelievable ways. Both the writer (WendyKout) and the great Gould himself spoke and fielded audience questions.I made the mistake of asking Ms. Kout why the characters seemed attimes like caricatures, and I was stunned by her response, which I'llquote in its entirety: "You are SO welcome to your opinion." This movieis redeemed a bit by Gould's vulnerability and charm, but his talent islargely squandered in a script penned by a Hollywood hack.
