Synopsis

Ryan and Jennifer, two brainy UC Berkeley students, are discovering the difficulties of relationships in the ‘00s. Involved with other people, they soon detect an attraction for one another, which leads to a best friendship. But you know the movies; best friends eventually turn into lovers. (Picture “When Harry Met Sally” for the college set). They tell each other their deepest secrets and cry on each other’s shoulders over failing affairs. But will they realize that they were made for each other, or will their fear of losing that special nonsexual intimacy keep them from falling in love?

Dove Review

“Boys and Girls” is an adolescent romantic comedy, with little depth or character development. These college yuppies behave more like junior high dropouts and the writers seem lost when they can’t rely on crudity or sexual hijinks.
