Alyson Hannigan - "Date Movie" - Suntimes.com Review

Hannigan has a great ’Date’ weekend

’Date Movie" felt the love over the weekend. The parody of romantic comedies starring "American Pie’s" Alyson Hannigan finally gave teens a break from horror — and a taste of relationship horror.

"I’m a big sucker for a movie love story," admits Hannigan. "I’m the girl in the theater who is crying and thinking, ’Ohhhh, please let them get together. ... Ohhh no, there’s a slutty girl who is interrupting the relationship."

In "Date Movie" Hannigan spoofs romantic comedies, including "Shallow Hal" with the requisite fat suit. "It’s really weird to see yourself that large, but it felt good. It was freeing in a way because you really lost yourself," she says. But it was all padding. "I can’t even tell the stories about how I enjoyed myself eating ice cream and burgers."

Hannigan stars in the TV series "How I Met Your Mother." She has fond memories of her days on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." In real life she’s married to "Buffy" costar Alexis Denisof, Wesley on the series. "He was a friend first and my rock while fighting the forces of evil," she jokes.
