Don't look for much of Ken Olin, but an okay film otherwise
13 July 2004 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Henry (Ken Olin) owns a bar that is considered a hot spot for those in the know. Naturally, younger AND older men and women frequent the bar, hoping to meet that dazzling someone. Among those who are on the prowl are a divorced airline pilot, a businessman with a live-in girlfriend, a female executive who breaks hearts with panache, a younger brunette with a gold digger complex and more. How will the chips of romance fall?

This is yet another film for those who enjoy the endless quest for true love. The players here are both attractive and unattractive, humorous and boring, kind and ruthless, etc. Ken Olin has a very minor role and is not in the hunt for romance at all. Instead, Robert Rusler steals the show as an attractive yuppie with a crush on an older woman. Also adorable is the blonde, married man who is a complete klutz on his first attempt at infidelity. Overall, however, the film is just average in most respects. Romance junkies will enjoy it. All others may want to tune into something else.
