Extremely boring film about self-centered men and the women who love them
8 December 2006 | by (Miami post Boston) – See all my reviews

Since I grew up in Boston and worked in Back Bay area at the time period of this film, I though it would be really interesting. Some of the scenes brought back memories but why try to set the film in the Back Bay in the opening shot and then move it to the Harvard Square area shortly afterward? This is, after all, about the staff of the Back Bay Mainliner. But the worst thing about this film is how self-centered Harry, Michael and Max are. The film just dies when they are spouting about their problems and trying to get another woman into the sack. The women in this film seem to be much more interesting, especially when they interact with each other. Too bad they weren't given more screen time.
