Ira & Abby

I quite enjoyed this little movie.  It starts with an interesting premise – if you feel an initial connection with someone, why not just go for it?  The movie navigates through traditional rom-com themes in a way that is fresh and unique.  While there isn’t necessarily anything new here the quality of the cast (especially the under-appreciated Westfeldt) allows this to be better than maybe it should be.

Movie description: A neurotic, young psychology student, with low self-esteem, has a chance encounter with a free-spirited, extremely gregarious woman who works at the Paris Health Club in New York City, and who suggests that they immediately get married to see how it will work out.
