His elder brother helps him with a car and a credit card to be successful. This simple story gets complicated because of the corpse in the trunk. From there, other nightmares begin .
Plot: Tom McHugh quickly learns that his perfect big brother Craig isn’t all he’s cracked up to be while on a night on the town with the girl next door, during which Tom is harassed by unpleasant strangers, threatened by mobsters, pursued by police, attacked by an irate florist, accused of murder, and has his date kidnapped—all because everyone thinks he’s Craig…and the classic 1959 DeSoto Firesweep he borrowed off his brother has two dead bodies in the trunk.

When someone even if it’s your brother offers to fix you up on a date with the girl of your dreams, watch out because if it’s too good to be true, it usually is. That’s the position that young Ethan Hawke who worships his older brother Brian McNamara.
McNamara is however not studying to be a lawyer, but instead is a crook who has stolen from a Chinese gangster played by James Wong and who wants his goods back. What McNamara is doing by even giving Hawke his car, his fashionable wardrobe and even his credit card is set up his younger brother while he deals in relative safety. So that first date with Teri Polo is an experience not likely to be forgotten.
Mystery Date definitely has a few laughs in it, but throughout it I couldn’t really get all that amused over the plight of Hawke and Polo. I mean this kid really worships McNamara and this guy is such a sleaze to take advantage of that. Kind of puts a damper on the humor.
Funniest performance has to be from Fisher Stevens who plays a psychotic floral delivery guy who McNamara stiffs for a tip and then goes berserk, taking it out on poor Hawke, the schlemiel. It doesn’t make up for the overall weak plot premise.
Interesting idea, pretty improbable ending
I caught “Mystery Date” on TV one night. It portrays nerdy Tom McHugh (Ethan Hawke) learning from older brother Craig (Brian McNamara) how to ask a girl out on a date. But when it comes time for the date, a series of things go wrong, and before you know it, the whole thing looks like Dave Barry’s novel “Big Trouble”.
I should identify that “Mystery Date” isn’t a bad movie. It’s just that the ending seemed a little improbable. Otherwise, most of the movie’s acceptable. Victor Wong had a fairly goofy line, and it was interesting seeing Teri Polo in the years before she became the woman in “Meet the Parents”.
