Overview

A man finds himself wondering just what he wants from a relationship after his personal ad gets a very unexpected response in Sweethearts. Arliss Mitch Rouse is a single guy in his early 30's who has placed a personal ad, hoping to find the woman of his dreams. One night Arliss heads to a coffee shop called The Asylum to meet a woman named Jasmine who has answered his ad. He's been told to expect a slender blonde woman in sandals and a flowered dress, and isn't sure what to think when an idiosyncratically attractive brunette dressed in black played by Janeane Garofalo begins badgering him with questions about himself, his "ideal" woman and what he's looking for from life. After a while, Arliss is convinced he's been stood up, until he discovers the woman who's been pestering him for the last hour is actually Jasmine. She tells Arliss she liked the sound of his voice and fudged on personal details about herself, convinced if he knew the truth about her, he wouldn't be interested. She also lets him know she wants someone to help her celebrate her birthday -- and she has a gun. However, what becomes disturbingly clear is that she doesn't intend to use the gun on Arliss, but on herself. Stephen Malkmus of the alternative rock band Pavement makes a cameo appearance as a singer at the coffeehouse; songs by Joe Henry and Alejandro Escovedo are featured on the soundtrack.

    great movie

    Janeane Garofalo stars in this movie as a young woman who answers a personal ad in the paper as a sort of 'last chance'. she meets the man at a cafe but doesn't tell him who she is right away making for some light hearted fun before this movie takes a very unexpectedly dark turn. That's more info than you need. Janeane Garofalo does an amazing job in this movie! This is the best I've ever seen her. Her performance is funny, whimsy, and dark all at the same time. She shows a vulnerubility here that I've never seen in her before and it fits her fine. The film has a mystery ending, one that leaves you wondering about the fate of one of the charachters without giving you many clues and this is one of the few imperfections in this movie. This is a love/compassion search story that's better and more watchable than "Closer" with performances at times better than any in "Closer"
