During the tests he meets a beautiful Indian nurse, Leeza (Anjali Jay).
Meanwhile, because Danny is a virgin at 22, his brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas), who runs a limousine service, gets him a string of hilariously disastrous blind dates in between rentals.
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film two and a half stars out of four and wrote, "There are individual moments in this movie that are as funny as anything Edwards has ever done, but they're mostly sight gags and don't grow out of the characters. Willis plays a nerd so successfully that he fades into the shrubbery and never really makes us care about his fate.
He even forces David to do a moonwalk before firing at the frightened man's feet.When Danny finally realizes that he is falling for Leeza, she tells him she cannot see him anymore because she has been promised in an arranged marriage. Perkins (Stephen Tobolowsky) advise him to continue because it is his only chance of seeing, and soon Danny is successfully operated on.
