Storyline

A group of friends in New York, working away at their PCs and laptops, keep in touch exclusively by phone and fax. They are all too busy to meet face to face. Gale plays matchmaker, by phone, to Jerry and Barbara who, in turn, hit it off beautifully...via phone and fax. Martin gets a telephone call from someone he's never met. It's Denise, with some extraordinary news. Tapping away at his computer all the while, he develops a sort of friendship with Denise...via phone. And so it goes as the friends, tap, tap, tapping away, share news, hopes, and dreams...via phone and fax. Finally Gale has an unfortunate encounter with a phone, Denise has some more news for Martin, and Frank plans a gala New Year's Eve party, but will he answer the door?

phone sex anyone?...hold please, call waiting
24 September 1999 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Funny spoof on the high tech, alienated society we live in today.At first this film aggravated me with all the telephones ringing and no one talking face to face. However, after a few minutes I settled into the routine and enjoyed watching a group of job junkies who were unable to relate to anyone unless they had re-dial, voice mail, and speaker phones.
