Hello, My Name is Doris

Hello, My Name is Doris is a sweet, quirky comedy starring Sally Fields and Max Greenfield. The premise of the movie is that Sally Fields’ character Doris meets John in an elevator on his first day at her office, and she likes him, she really, really likes him.. Sorry I had to.

If the actor names didn’t give it away, the story is more than just a regular rom-com.. Sally Fields is twice the age of Max Greenfield, and her crush is very much one sided. It also provides an interesting commentary on the relationships within the office between people from different generations.

The movie was made on a tiny $1,000,000 budget – but it doesn’t show when you’re watching the movie. The acting is fantastic – Sally Fields is amazing of course and her counterpart Max Greenfield doesn’t let her down. The supporting cast is surprisingly good for a low budget film as well, including Rich Sommer, Natasha Lyonne, Beth Behrs, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Stephen Root and Elizabeth Reaser.

Fun fact: Peter Gallagher plays a self help guru in the movie.. He also played Max Greenfield’s father on New Girl AND Max Greenfield played Peter Gallagher’s son on The OC!

This movie is refreshingly different, it’s quirky, funny, sweet, sentimental and at times cringey in the best way.
