When an ambitious, serious-minded talent manager is forced to attend a wilderness therapy retreat weekend to save his disastrous, Hollywood-starlet client's career, he has no clue he is about to fall unexpectedly head over heels for her new, awkward, fun-loving life-coach.

Director: Nancy Criss

Writer: Jake Helgren

Taglines: Boy Meets Girl. Boy Helps Girl. Girl Helps Boy Get Boy.

Genres: Comedy, Romance

Storyline: Not only is Clark Townsend one of the hottest young men in West Hollywood, but he has successfully managed to turn his best friend and first client Eddy Malone—a talented, eccentric party girl—into one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. Now, after buying a new condo, Clark throws a dinner party, inviting friends and colleagues, including Eddy’s domineering publicist TJ—a black lesbia...n quickly losing her patience with Eddy’s wild ways. With TJ comes longtime friend Pearce Wright—an awkward, spiritual, down-to-Earth life counselor, who is smitten with Clark at first sight. Clark, however, is far too wrapped up in Eddy to notice, especially when Eddy pulls an offbeat stunt that almost kills her career, and forces TJ to drop her as a client indefinitely. In an effort to win Clark over, Pearce propositions TJ, offering his services to Eddy in return of TJ giving her a second chance. TJ reluctantly agrees, and Clark is thrilled to oblige Eddy’s time in exchange for a second shot with TJ. Without Eddy’s consent, Clark agrees to let Pearce take them all on a weekend wilderness therapy retreat, in hopes of helping Eddy gain a new perspective on her life and career. That weekend, a motley crew of Clark and Eddy's closest friends trek to a cabin in the Angeles National Forest, where Pearce hopes to not only give Eddy a new outlook, but convince Clark of one as well—one that involves a romance between the two of them.

Finding Mr. Wright is a little sweet movie; it's not actually short in time but it's in the plot, it's like the appetizer to a beautiful love story. Clark has his trouble managing bad girl Eddy, and when they are losing also the support of TJ, Eddy's publicist, Clark agrees to a weekend in the wilderness with life-coach Pearce. It's clear to everyone, other than Clark, that Pearce is more interested in catching Clark than saving Eddy, also since, well, Eddy can be a little difficult, but she is not really a bad girl. She is the first actually to try helping Pearce in his man-hunt that is becoming more and more difficult due to the interferences of Clark's ex-boyfriend Cooper; at the beginning I was thinking he was in for the ride to try to maintain his in-off relationship with Clark, but surprisingly he is more interested in stealing Pearce's attention.

Even if Matthew Montgomery and David Moretti are cute enough to be a more than nice leading couple of a romance comedy, Edward Gusts as Cooper and Rebekah Kochan as Eddy more than once steal the scene. More than once I was almost cheering for Cooper to be able to manage to get into Pearce's pants and when Eddy's disappeared from the scene, I almost wanted to follow her to see in what trouble she was getting into.

David Moretti in the role of the nerdy Pearce is perfect and the love story between Clark and Pearce is very sweet. No naked torso around guys, this is definitely a romance movie, so plenty of feeling, some sweet kisses, even a tears or two, pretty boys around and feisty and strong women (Eddy, JT).

As I told at the beginning this movie seemed an appetizer, and even if in the end boy catches boy, I wouldn't mind to see if boy manages to get into boy (yes, pun intended).
