If You Only Knew ★★ 2000

Struggling New York writer (are there any other kind?) Parker (Schaech) falls for painter Samantha (Eastwood) when he answers her ad for someone to share her loft. She has no problem rooming with a guy—as long as he's gay. So Parker moves in and finds the pretense an increasing struggle. Formulaic but Eastwood is a real charmer. 111m/C VHS, DVD . Johnathon Schaech, Alison Eastwood, Gabrielle Anwar, James LeGros, Lainie Kazan, Paul Sampson, Frank Vincent, Annie Corley, Miguel A. Nunez Jr., Gabrielle Anwar, David Snedeker; D: David Snedeker.
