I wanted to get this in yesterday, for Valentine's Day, but missed it. Better late than never!

The movie Hitch features a pretty funny speed-dating scene. Although I know it's not the only movie/tv show to have featured speed-dating, it's the only one that I can clearly remember!

Found this reference to Shoppen - a German movie on speed dating (2007)

EDIT: added link to Wikipedia entry for Shoppen...

Looks interesting - not what I expected. I should watch out for a dubbed version to run on Showcase here in Canada or on A&E in the States!

Sorry, fodder - I don't speak German! However, I'm not sure what prompted me to write "dubbed" as normally Showcase subtitles foreign movies...

I don't do German either, I only know a few phrases like "Arbeit macht frei!" (my boss says that sometimes tongue), and "Wir mussen die juden ausroten!" (from a soutpark episode where cartman goes nuts) - apart from that I can understand a tiny bit of it, but that's it. I just tend to hate dubbing, and even for japanase I would prefer subs any day. I think my dislike for dubbing approaches pure-breed hate, probably because of all the really really bad german dubbing I saw back in my preteen days when we had satellite TV. Ugly.
