Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Daniel Weizmann
If you're thinking, "An Americanization of Lina Wertmuller's audacious 1976 film Seven Beauties?" think again. This amiable independent comedy does, however, take a good long look at what makes relationships between men and women work. The feature debut of veteran TV director Paul Lazarus (Melrose Place, Ned and Stacey), Seven Girlfriends features a cast of familiar small- and big-screen faces, beginning with Wings hunk Tim Daly as Jesse. When Jesse's ex-girlfriend Anabeth (Laura Leighton, Melrose Place's sassy psycho Sydney) dies in a car crash, he proposes marriage to his current girlfriend (Olivia D'Abo), who rejects him. This double whammy sends Jesse off on a Siddhartha-like mission, asking former flames to help him understand why his relationships always fail. Anabeth visits Daly in dreams with an indiscreet combo of love advice and steamy sexual fantasy. As he begins to unearth exes, including Mimi Rogers and Elizabeth Pena, he learns a thing or two about emotional connections while slowly but surely exorcising Anabeth's ghost. Daly is great as the stoic yet down-in-the-mouth Jesse, and Jami Gertz rocks as his most disgruntled former love. At turns sexy, insightful, warm, and comical, Seven Girlfriends nearly strikes the balance between cute Hollywood slapstick kitsch and deeper laughs.
