I don't know too many people who have seen or even heard of this film but those that do all love it! A very underrated teen comedy from the early 90s!

A Wonderfully Funny Romantic Comedy......
C. Pol | Ontario, Canada | 04/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Mystery Date" stars Ethan Hawke (Training Day) and Teri Polo (Meet The Parents) in a great romantic-comedy that is sure to be loved by everyone. Geena (Polo) stars as the gorgeous neighbour of Tom (Hawke), whom he is completely infatuated with. Tom tries to get the nerve to ask her out, but fails at every turn. A surprise visit from his older brother (Brian McNamara) brings a bit of luck Tom's way. Through a bit of work, Tom's brother sets him up on a date with Geena. Things couldn't be better, except for the small of exception of a little bit of mistaken identity on the part of Tom. For some reason, people think he's his older brother. Over the course of the evening the duo have run-ins with a maniacal flower delivery boy (Fisher Stevens), paid-off cops, a crime lord and other trouble. Do the two escape alive, or does this spell the end of Tom and Geena? I highly recommend this movie as the laughs are plenty. Many people are sure to relate to this romantic-comedy about a first-date. Ethan and Teri do wonderful jobs in their respective rolls and the movie has got a pretty decent transfer too. The disc has both widescreen and fullscreen versions of the movie, in addition to the original trailer. Watch, enjoy, laugh, and you will not be disappointed."
Great Movie!

"I don't even remember how I stumbled across this movie, but it has remained one of my favorites through the years.I recommend this movie to anyone who has ever gone on a first date and experienced the nightmares that can come when things don't go as planned. The 'hero' of our story has a crush on the girl next door secretly until his brother convinces and later sets up on a date with her. Unknown to our hero is that his 'mystery date' is the alibi for his brother.On the run from the crooks and the cops he must keep his date entertained and alive until he can get to the bottom of the plot against him.I wore out the VHS tape at the video store so I had to buy the DVD. See this movie! You will not regret it."

"This movie offers a lot of funs. The story moves very well to me. The most important thing is that I'm very happy after watching this one (even after watching a couple of times). Just love it (one of my favorites of all time)"
