"John Walsh's Pipe Dream is one of the funniest films I've seen this year. ...Donovan has never shown this kind of spry leading-man charm, and his flirtation with Parker has just enough competitive hostility to set off sparks."
"A witty, low-key romantic comedy... The dialogue by Walsh and Cynthia Kaplan, is sharp and nimble.
"She's smart. She's sexy. She's taken. Thanks to a new season of 'The West Wing' and a role in 'Red Dragon,' this moment belongs to Mary-Louise Parker. ...Parker also stars this month in the indie film 'Pipe Dream'.."
"Donovan and Parker are so utterly charming,
and director John Walsh's touch is so perfectly light, that the
film immediately swept me up into its world."
"Donovan makes us totally believe the
character and his predicament, co-star Mary-Louise Parker is especially
witty and winning as the film's screenwriter, and the script makes
a shrewd statement about how people are invariably ruled by their
false perceptions of others."
A plumber looking for a date and a screenwriter looking
to direct conspire together to lie, cheat, steal, and fall in love.
PIPE DREAM is the second feature film by writer/director
John Walsh. His first, EDS NEXT MOVE, was released in 1996
by Orion after its Sundance premiere, the same year he met his wife,
