Deb Dorfman is underappreciated by her family. None-the-less, she’s surrounded by them. She works for her brother and lives with her dad and can’t seem to raise her self-esteem enough to stand up to them. When her crush goes off to a job overseas, she offers to watch his cat and is thrust into a situation where she needs to evolve.

I expect more from Indie movies. Since Indie movies aren’t held under the thumb of big production companies, I expect a certain amount of creativity; they simply don’t have to pander to the least common denominator. Unfortunately, some still do.

Dorfman in Love is a movie that offers nothing to its genre. It makes Indie movies look bad and is exactly the kind of movie that makes guys think “chick flicks” aren’t worth their time. Hell, this “chick flick” wasn’t even worth MY time, and I do this for a living. I spent the majority of the movie yawning.

There was a couple of amusing scenes, but everything else was just terrible. I wouldn’t recommend this movie at all.
