Better than I expected. (spoilers)
31 December 2004 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

A previous viewer was right, don't expect to see much of Ken Olin in this film, as, given the time period, it was obvious that his name was a vehicle for the movie while others (as familiar as their faces may be) were rather obscure male actors (and some female ones, too) who gained greater notoriety, for the most part, as the years went on.

This is one of those movies with assorted male and female characters passing the time trying to figure out that one thing: love. And whether or not they want any part of it. Actually, it is less about discovering 'love' and more about the cliché of 'what women want' or 'what men want.' So this is a story similar to movies like 'The Big Chill' or 'Queens Logic,' and others, except that it is done a little better, a little more subtle, and through the course of one night at a club.

I particularly like the chemistry between the middle-age couple, founded after a guy finds out that he frequented the same bar as his daughter, and appropriately, could be more paternal once he met a woman there about his age and hits it off well. Robert Rusler, whom I rented the movie to see, plays something of an office geek by day, but stunning gentleman by night, as he realizes that the bar his buddies took him to was also frequented by a woman from the office that he really likes. Of course, none of these movies would be complete without the super-chauvinist over-achiever, this one playing Ken Olin's brother, the guy who can't figure out why, since he is only cheating on women and refuses any sort of commitment (probably even second or third dates if he's tired of them), he can't seem to get a steady girlfriend.

This made-for-TV movie is a nice mix of characters and a good little story with a few laughs. Don't believe the plot synopsis from IMDb, however, there is nothing much "erotic" about it.
