About the Movie
Jane (Louisa Krause) is a bright-eyed young woman in her mid-20s living with autism. When her parents announce that they’re moving to the suburbs, they propose that Jane move in with her overprotective, recently engaged older sister, Bianca (Elisha Dushku). Inspired by Bianca’s relationship, Jane announces that she wants a boyfriend – and that she wants Bianca’s help. Bianca embarks on a search, pessimistic that anyone will accept Jane’s eccentricities. Unbeknownst to Bianca, her good friend Jack (Tony Award winner Gabriel Ebert), a womanizing sous chef who wants to change his ways, becomes enamored with Jane, and goes around Bianca’s back to ask her out on a date.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For the most part ... Jane Wants a Boyfriend keeps the proceedings a bit too cute and would benefit from giving the protagonist more subjectivity.
Rotten: "Jane Wants a Boyfriend" loses momentum careening between Dushku's Bianca and Krause's Jane - the latter of whom is far more interesting.
Rotten: Sweetly-intentioned though somewhat awkwardly structured ...
Loved this! Incredibly charming
Refreshing to watch a new spin on the classic romantic dramedy. Great acting too!
It had potential
The storyline was good, music was charming and it almost hit the mark. It seemed that the actors relied on cursing to relay emotion which really ruined it for me. This could have been a cute, quirky movie but something was just off.
Took a chance and bought the movie, well worth it! The movie is funny and sweet with great acting. Gabriel Ebert does an awesome job!
