Brian and his crew enact the age-old theory of â€śsix degrees of separationâ€ť in their attempt to get to Drew. Calls are made to people who know people who drive limos for celebrities who might know Drew. The guys use all of their connections and even end up interviewing actors like Eric Roberts and Corey Feldman (who tells the story of how Drew asked him out when he was 10). They further use their resources to produce a short trailer for the yet-to-be-finished documentary where they employ the well-known movie trailer voice talent of George DelHoyo. They send the polished trailer, which was edited on one of the guyâ€™s laptops, directly to Flower Films, Drewâ€™s production company, in the hopes it will get noticed and they will get a call from Drewâ€™s people. No such luck.
Most calls and contacts lead to dead ends, and Brian starts to get frustrated that his dream of going on a date with Drew will never happen. Bill collectors are calling him, he begs his parents for a little extra cash, and the 30 days are coming to a close. In a last-ditch effort at getting near Drew, Brian attends the premiere of Charlieâ€™s Angels 2: Full Throttle and fails miserably at getting her attention. The guys even mock up some all-access passes for the after party and hope he doesnâ€™t get caught sneaking into the soiree.
I must say that I donâ€™t know that I wouldâ€™ve gone to such great lengths for a chance to be near Drew Barrymore when she was the object of my celebrity worship. Most of the time, Brian just embarrasses himself in front of industry people, professionals and friends. Heâ€™s openly dorky at times, singing loudly in the car and acting like a giddy school kid whenever a call that might lead to Drew comes in. Heâ€™s not afraid to make fun of himself and to show real emotion, all for the sake of getting Drewâ€™s attention. Or rather, all for the sake of making a documentary that might get him some attention.
I canâ€™t say if Brian ends up getting a date with Drew, because ultimately that would spoil the documentary. But when the 30th day rolls around, we see still pictures of him and his friends packing up the video camera, going back to Circuit City and returning it, all set to Eric Carmenâ€™s â€śAll By Myself.â€ť The montage is freaking hilarious, yet painfully sad, and for a moment we are just as disappointed as Brian and his friends who tried their darndest to get their buddy a date with Drew.
