I'm with Lucy (2002)

This inane movie from director Jon Sherman and writer Eric Pomerance stars Monica Potter (Boston Legal; Saw) as Lucy, a blonde reporter with Jewish New York parents. She flounces around the city, kind of like a long-lost wanna-be sibling of someone from a Woody Allen film except without the dramatic or intellectual flair. 

Lucy is heading over for a wedding in a taxi with her two best friends. This is a perfect vehicle (the filmmakers hope) for a quirky retrospective of five different guys Lucy dated during the year and the misadventures the dates generated. There’s the intellectual Irish entomologist (John Hannah), the sensual Latino stud/playwright (Gael García Bernal), the gruff ex baseball champion (Anthony LaPaglia), the hunky doctor with a short temper (David Boreanaz) and the boy next door who’s in finance (Henry Thomas). 

Which one will she choose? Before we find out, we have to put up with seemingly interminable restaurant and dating scenes where foibles spill aplenty. I found this movie immensely tedious and wouldn’t recommend it to many people. Watch out for the many continuity flaws, especially with the taxi numbers—it is careless filmmaking at its most visible. 

Maybe a group of people who all suddenly got dumped and need some sort of hope that the right person will come along eventually (within a year?) can get together and bitch about exes while the sound on I’m with Lucy is kept to a minimum. The extras are just distributor trailers and a photo gallery. Sorry to say it, but I’m definitely not with Lucy.
