Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Funny, bright, fast-paced, and acted by a young cast born to their roles, Art House succeeds in its effort to be an anti-Hollywood romantic comedy without breaking too many of the very rules it sets out to mock. The humor is very insider-insider, but anyone renting a film called "Art House" is going to know the cinema jargon that's slapped around at a furious pace. Dan O'Donahue, who co-wrote the script with director Leigh Slawner, comes off like a more jaded version of Jerry Seinfeld in a performance that should have been a breakout role for the young actor. One recurring bit involving Cool Guy (Adam Carolla), the guy who is always in the coffee shop to answer questions large and small, has a poignant punch line, and Ray's epiphany at the end is deceptively rendered. His offer of marriage to the love of his life is one of the best written and recited proposals committed to screen. Porn star Ron Jeremy makes a hilarious cameo, but, like the rest of Art House, you have to know a little about it to get the joke.
