Storyline

Tommie is a young guy in Manhattan with a dead-end job handing out fliers in Times Square. At the beginning of a fateful summer, he has a chance encounter with a friend who tells Tommie that he's headed to Provincetown, on the Cape, for a long weekend. Tommie is inspired to make his own trek to P-town, where he goes on a summer long, balls-out quest for Mr. Right, even though he has no money and holds his breath each time he uses his American Express card. In the course of the summer, Tommie looks for a work as a house boy at various inns, works several jobs, benefits from the kindness of a stranger, and gets involved with a series of men. Is it all worth it? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sure it's low budget, but a good story
9 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure it was low budget, and it was produced, written, directed and starred a single person with questionable acting skills, but it is a good story. I think the incredibly cheap effects were done on purpose.

Wally White as Tommie is the creator of the entire flick, and his supporting cast appear to be characters of people we all know. The film seems to be an advertisement for Provincetown summer vacations. One thing I liked is the actors all appear to be real people that we could meet on a summer vacation, not polished Hollywood types.

Just don't take the film too seriously, and if you have an hour and a half to kill, it can be an enjoyable time.
