For years, Brian Herzlinger has had a crush on a pretty girl. There's nothing so strange about that, or even that the girl in question is the famous actress Drew Barrymore. What is unusual is that Herzlinger decided to do something about it. Herzlinger was flat broke and out of work when he won 1,100 dollars on a game show, and decided it was time to make his dream come true -- and make a movie about it at the same time. Herzlinger and a friend bought a high-end video camera at an electronics store with a 30-day, "no questions asked" return policy, and with his 1,100-dollar bankroll, they set out to find a way to meet Drew Barrymore and have Brian take her out on a date before they ran out of cash and had to return the camera. My Date With Drew is the document of Herzlinger's struggle to live out a regular guy's dream. My Date With Drew won the Audience Award at the 2004 HBO Comedy Arts Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Now I remember why I left LA by Alicat April 27, 2006 - 8:34 PM PDT
Watching this movie reminded me why I moved from LA. This guy is a loser who can't pay his rent and thinks that people will want to watch him fondle Hollywood D LISTERS (including Corey Feldman)in order to get to Drew Barrymore. Seriously, the guy, who is 27 by the way, has to get money from his dad to pay rent.

He pulls evry stupid gimick in the book to try and meet Drew Barrymore. There is even a work out montage, a body wax debate and a "practice date" with a DREW LOOK A LIKE. Pathetic. This film is 90 minutes of a guy making "contacts" and singing in his car. It's just not as funny as you think.

The best part was when he asked a director friend what he thought of his idea - he said "For America's sake, I hope you fail"
The dumbing down of America indeed.

It would be very easy for this to be stalker-ish... but it's not... by Neutron March 13, 2006 - 10:31 PM PST

it's wonderful, funny, life affirming, and pretty amazing that they pulled this off with $1100 and a camera that they returned to Circuit City.

To a certain degree i'm reminded of American Movie with the "follow the dream" sort of attitude.

"If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul.", that's a quote from Drew Barrymore that opens the movie, and it sets the tone well.

I see why the studios didn't know what to do with it, but it is well worth watching and it's the kind of treasure that makes me love greencine all the more.
