Picks and Pans Review: Her

By Laura Zigman

Elise, a freelance editor, and Donald, a teacher, meet on the Delta shuttle and fall in love by the time they hit baggage claim. After they get engaged, though, Donald's beautiful ex-fiancée Adrienne comes stomping in like Godzilla and the fun begins. Zigman (Animal Husbandry) makes her heroine neurotic, jealous and believable, getting a lot of mileage out of scenes like the one where Elise, rummaging through old photos of the ex, finds "her legs were definitely longer than mine. Like, easily twice as long. Should I just kill myself now?" Her is essentially a sitcom, but it's Must See TV. (Knopf, $22)
