101 Ways (The Things A Girl Will Do To Keep Her Volvo) Movie Review
Jennifer B. Katz's lighthearted fable about love and bankruptcy is amusing and lightly entertaining, though its heroine Watson (Wendy Hoopes, best known as the voice of Jane and Quinn on MTV's Daria) isn't entirely sympathetic.
When she isn't making eyes at the local grocery store cashier (Glenn Fitzgerald), poor Watson is trying to make ends meet. She can't hold a job -- whether that's waitressing or phone sex -- and mom won't help her out. Oh, and she wants to be a writer -- original, huh?
And there you have the movie 101 Ways in a nutshell. Not terribly empowering, not terribly funny, not terrible believable, and almost wholly inoffensive, Hoopes and Katz don't generate much emotion but they make us giggle from time to time. It's a fair enough entry into the slacker genre of filmmaking, though its pretty much unmemorable.
