Some people have compared this film to the films of Woody Allen. No wonder I REALLY disliked this film! This film was a meandering directionless 90 minutes of non-event. At times I felt like I was watching someones home movies, then I was watching a film with no script, story line or direction... Like most of the scenes were ad- libbed... And not very cleverly either. If John Waters ever made a "rom-com", this was it, only without the entertainment value. At times you hear the traffic noise louder then the dialogue. This film is like being chained to two of the most annoying, unappealing people in NYC on a really, really long date, and you can't run away. 40 minutes into this film, I was totally ready to shut down the DVD player and Frisbee this DVD right off my balcony, but I stuck it out, hoping I would find some redeeming feature about this film. No such luck. Being compared to W. Allen might be a good comparison... I don't like anything he's done cinematically, either. I realize I'm in the minority there, probably. I loved his late 60's/early 70's stand up... That's it. Perhaps I'm "unenlightened", but I'm amazed this film got above 3 stars.
