I genuinely like Sarah Jessica Parker. She's bright,chatty,funny and stage-trained. She seems quite sweet from the interviews I've sen her in. So I felt I should give this film a chance. This film,about two platonic friends(Parker and the writer,director Eric Schaefer)who are so convinced that finding love is such a bleak undertaking that they decide to make a suicide pact if they don't find somebody by the time they both turn 30,is such a mind-numbing,depressing film that it shows off all the pretense of the coffee house hipness of the era.
The concept of the film is unique and intriguing,but the lengths it goes to,plus all the clever little "Friends"/"Singles"-like humor(for examples:the spit-test,Joe going nuclear over a guest taking a crap in their apartment bathroom,etc.) makes this more self-indulgent and sad than the "ironic" that I think the filmmaker was aiming for.
Not to mention it wastes Ben Stiller and Elle MacPherson(who they manage to make look remarkably UNattractive!). I like to think I'm a fair and moderate judge of movies,but this film was so bad that I probably haven't had a look at this in over eight years and I STILL have a bad reaction to it.
