Storyline

Joey Breaker is a fast-talking, ambitious, workaholic agent representing actors, screenwriters, and comedians for the New York firm of Morgan Creative. He is callous and intolerant, but when he unexpectedly falls in love, he begins to see that he has been missing much of what is important in life. His demeanor mellows and he learns to be more tolerant of others. Suddenly, he is faced with a difficult choice when his girlfriend graduates from nursing school and returns to Jamaica.

What a gem!
12 March 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It's so nice to see a film that genuinely has a lot of heart and wit but isn't mushy or terminally quirky! I can't imagine how anyone could dislike this film, unless they miss mind-numbing sit-com exploitation. The characters are real and likable, and they are seen living in the world that surrounds them, as well as their own lives, which in this case are dominated by work and status. There's really no other film like this (maybe that's why it has such a low rating? How people love to cling to their formula movies - sigh!). It's not a "great" film, but it's as wonderful as spending an evening with friends who you know are genuine, and are great fun to be with. And hey, Philip Seymour Hoffman is in it. What more is there to say?
