Is it possible for a girl’s “Mr. Right” to be scientifically validated? That’s the question posed for intense study by brainy but neurotic Harvard grad student Samantha, even as her scientific research experiments appear to be going awry. Director Weiss, who incidentally has a Ph.D. from Harvard Medical School, crafts a wacky, breezy, and thoroughly delightful comedy of errors as Samantha contends with a Jewish mother, an academic arch-villain, and some dates from hell in her search for true love. Named First Honorable Mention for the Christopher Wetzel Award for Independent Film Comedy. HDCAM video. (BS)
