The Alan Rudolph film is pretty good, though I haven't seen it in ages. Ed Ruscha has a minor role as a radio DJ who makes locker room remarks about on-air sex therapist Genevieve Bujold from the safety of his soundproof control room. Keith Carradine plays her mysterious love interest. The Tolkien parts were good, too.
Also, "romantic comedy" doesn't quite nail it for Rudolph: he prefers the term "emotional science fiction." Maybe someone thought that meant hobbits.
