Within weeks of her arrival, she landed a series regular role in ABC's Ein Trio zum Anbeißen (1998), alongside Ryan Reynolds, Traylor Howard and Richard Ruccolo. That same year, she co-wrote and starred in an off-Broadway play, with Heather Juergensen, called "Lipschtick: The Story of Two Women Seeking The Perfect Shade", that caught the attention of Hollywood studios. The play was optioned by "Radar Pictures" to be made into a film, starring Westfeldt and Juergensen.After one season on "Two Guys", 20th Century Fox Studios pulled Jennifer from that show to cast her as the lead of another show for them, the short-lived Schief gewickelt (1998) on Fox.While Westfeldt was busy shooting sitcoms, she and Juergensen were also hard at work, developing their play into a screenplay. Frustrated by the slow pace of studio development, they bought back the rights to their script and decided to make their film independently, on a shoestring budget. The film was Kissing Jessica (2001)."Kissing Jessica Stein" was snapped up by "Fox Searchlight", when it debuted at the LA International Film Festival, then was released to critical acclaim in March of 2002. Jennifer received the Golden Satellite Award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her role as "Jessica", an Indie Spirit Nomination for Best First Screenplay, and a Special Jury Prize for Writing and Acting at the Los Angeles International Film Festival.

She also starred in the indie, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover (2004) (aka "How To Lose Your Lover"), in 2004, opposite Paul Schneider.She made her Broadway debut, in the fall of 2003, in the critical and commercial hit, "Wonderful Town", starring opposite two-time Tony Winner Donna Murphy and directed by three-time Tony Winner Kathleen Marshall. Jennifer received a 2004 Tony nomination, a Theater World Award for Outstanding Broadway Debut, and a Drama League Award for her role as "Eileen Sherwood".Jennifer's second feature as an actress/scribe, Ira & Abby (2006), marked her first solo screen-writing effort. "Ira & Abby" won the Audience Award for Best Feature at the Los Angeles Film Festival, the Jury Prize for Best Feature at the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, and the Audience Award for Best Feature at the Boston Jewish Film Festival. Additionally, Jennifer won Best Actress at the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival for her performance as "Abby".
