Everything You Want Movie Review

Shiri Appleby will forever be to me the mousy girl in that awful film Swimfan, where she played the girlfriend to the dude that was getting stalked by the psycho. At the time, I wondered why the dude wouldn't dump her useless self and go for the hot, psychotic blonde. I'm even more confused now, only Everything You Want doesn't pit Appleby against another girl. This time she's got a couple of guys fighting over her, one of whom is imaginary. Why, we haven't had a film this ridiculous since Drop Dead Fred.

Made by ABC Family, this is romantic comedy with a bare minimum of either. Appleby, we learn, developed an unhealthy interest in art at an early age and drew herself her dream boyfriend, a geeky dude that looks like Screech from Saved By the Bell. When a real suitor comes along (after an appropriate amount of the usual they-hate-each-other-at-first antics), our darling bookstore employee and art student must decide between a real live boyfriend or her imaginary friend.

Well, there's no mystery at all where this is going or how it will end up, and even young girls (at whom this film is clearly targeted) will probably find Appleby's character to be pretty freakin' ridiculous before the film is up. Things aren't helped at all be the film's pedestrian direction and workmanlike performances. Hell, they couldn't even get Appleby out of an apron when putting her picture on the cover of the DVD.

Unfunny and absurd, the film just never finds proper footing.
