Brian Herzlinger is an ordinary guy with a lifelong dream to get a date with Drew Barrymore. He’s 27 years old; no job, no girlfriend, and he’s decided to document his quest to get a date with Drew. The only problem is, Brian is completely broke. And he doesn’t even own a video camera to make this documentary. Fortunately, he recently won $1,100 on a game show, where the winning answer was the name “Drew Barrymore”. So he figures it must be fate! With the help of his three best friends, Brian will use this cash prize to seize the moment and pursue his dream. And as it turns out, you don’t even need any money to buy a video camera these days, thanks to Circuit City’s 30-day Return Policy. So he grabs his buddy’s credit card and picks out the most expensive camera in the store, knowing he will have to finish his documentary before the camera has to go back.

So now Brian has 30 days and $1,100 to get a date with Drew Barrymore.

“My Date With Drew” is the hysterical and heartwarming story of four filmmakers on a quest to make one guy’s lifelong dream come true. This charming documentary has captured hearts and won awards in festivals across America. And with a budget of only $1,100 it’s a journey that proves that with a little bit of passion, anything is possible.

My Date With Drew never completely takes itself seriously, which allows it to be a delightful, entertaining film, and not the voyeuristic exercises of a celebrity-obsessed stalker.
