"Sexy surreal and entirely original, "Milk & Money" is the kind of film that is nearly impossible to pull off and yet somehow writer/director Michael Bergmann manages to do so with great success.David (Robert Petkoff), a recent medical school dropout, is walking casually down a New York City street. Within moments, two different women --utter strangers-- have asked David for enormous favors. In each case the amiable david immediately agrees to help. This premise may be preposterous but the acting is so winning and the directing so assured that the viewer is happily drawn into the film. Soon David becomes involved with the relocation of twenty-one cows,a homeless cattle expert (Peter Boyle) and a rich man's mistress (Calista Flockhart) who has a PhD in medieval literature.Trying to guess how all of these fantastical elements tie together is only one of "Milk & Money"'s gleeful pleasures.--Hamptons International Film Festival"

"It seems anybody who doesn't like Calista Flockhart is quick to discredit this movie, but all I can say is that it's lucky she is so well known, otherwise I probably wouldn't have got the chance to see this brilliant movie! This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen, and I've never seen another movie like it.
Unlike every other romantic comedy, this one is bizarrely unrealistic to a level deserving of cult status. Despite the look of the picture on the front, this is no Hugh Grant clone, and the man is not a bumbling idiot, rather he is swept into a course of quirky events. This is not a 'chick flick', there's no sad crying scenes to keep you in touch with your emotions. It's a very upbeat movie that a guy like me can enjoy!"
