I recently watched Jane Wants a Boyfriend. Has anyone else seen it? It's about a young lady with Asperger's who wants to start dating.

I enjoyed the plot, and I could relate to how the main character picked up her social cues from movies ( movies that she watches over and over and over. And over ). I also like how they portrayed the family efforts to find her a boyfriend, attempting to match her up with someone with ASD moreso than with someone she clicked with. I was on the fence about the portrayal of ASD, as I felt it was a little over the top. At least they didn't make the main character a gambling progeny or assassin.

It's worth a watch if you are in the mood for a Hallmark type film with Asperger's.

Yes, I thought it was a good movie. I also liked Keep The Change.
