Kissing Jessica Stein

Rating = B-

The theme of this movie is, as for so many movies, seeking love. The moral is to be willing to take a chance and, even if that doesn't work out, better things may result than from avoiding ever taking a chance.

The movie was written by its two co-stars and apparently was produced by them (and shot on a low budget) so they would have an acting vehicle; in this dimension, the movie is laudable and successful enough. It also has some funny lines. Altogether, however, the acting was business like rather than inspired, it plays longer than its published running time, and the final three scenes left me confused (didn't leave me in a state of thought provoking ambiguity).
