"Finding Amanda" is worth discovering
Yet in between these dark patches there are scenes of charm and humor. Steve Coogan is great as a pit boss who is familiar with Broderick’s character. The two share a few amusing scenes together. Peter Facinelli has some great moments as Amanda’s tool boyfriend and Snow’s performance is at times equal measure adorable and heartbreaking.
Finding Amanda may not have found an audience while in theaters, but it deserves to be watched on DVD and cable. It is an insightful and thoughtful character stury which avoids cliches and takes its own path.
