Janeane Garofalo may have no more than a cult following here, but it's growing fast. She's the best reason to check out this near-miss, a black sex war comedy about a blind date which proves that love isn't (blind, that is). Waiting for his dream girl to walk in, Arliss (Rouse) is buttonholed by the unfashionably forthright Jasmine (Garofalo). He's looking for slender and attractive; she's up for stimulating conversation - as long as he's doing the listening. This rather static piece, written, directed and produced by Aleks Horvat, is pretty funny for a while, but loses credibility when it tries for something wilder. It's refreshing to see a woman on screen who can string whole paragraphs together; a pity she has to be a bipolar manic depressive.
