The critically acclaimed romantic comedy of the year, Next Stop Wonderland is a lighthearted story about a man and a woman who seem destined to be together...and the hilarious chain of accidents that seem determined to keep them apart! Dumped by her loser boyfriend (Philip Seymour Hoffman - Cold Mountain), Erin (Hope Davis - Arlington Road ) thinks that her love life has hit rock bottom. In reality, the all-time low comes when her overbearing mother (Holland Taylor - TVs The Practice) places an embarrassing ad for her in the personals section of a local newspaper! Erin's disgust turns to curiosity, however, when the calls start pouring in all 64 of them! As she searches for the right guy in a hilarious series of disastrous dates, a lonely ex-plumber named Alan (Alan Gelfant) clumsily searches for his dream job...all the while narrowly missing one chance meeting with Erin after another! Filled with delightfully unexpected surprises you're sure to love every minute of it!moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Smart and beguiling, it manages the impressive feat of believing wholeheartedly in the power of love without checking its mind at the door.

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Low on plot but high on charm and personality, Next Stop Wonderland is a sly, hand-crafted indie that is very alive and attentive to its characters' feelings and foibles.

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Next Stop Wonderland isn't really much more than a beautifully acted, finely edited sitcom, but it creates and sustains an intelligent, seriocomic mood better than any recent film ...
