Fascinating look at the life of a Hollywood agent who finds love in the most unlikely place from an unlikely woman
20 April 1999 | by (Deep in the Heart of Texas) – See all my reviews

Quirky, low-budget film that I first saw at a small film festival. Although the script sometimes descends to cliches, this film skillfully contrasts the sometimes-empty life of an agent with that of his clients, his friends, and his love interest. The "B" story line of Joey Breaker's involvement in a worthy cause was predictable, though well-handled. Worth a look if one's taste tends toward the offbeat. More mature than the film "Zebrahead" which also addressed interracial love and its challenges.
