John Harmon Feldman, the director of this movie that we saw recently on cable, shows he can create a movie in which he has a point of view about modern relationships. In this case, Mr. Feldman concentrates in what appears to be a Los Angeles university. He shows a slice of the campus life as the young people get in love, and then they as they fail mercilessly by their new partners.
The director, who also wrote the screenplay, presents us with a merry go round of relationships that, at the beginning appear to be solid, but obviously, they didn't have a chance to survive and we watch how almost all of them disolve.
The best vignette in the film involves an older professor who likes a young woman that is living with an insufferable bore. Bruce Davidson, as the older man, and Sherilyn Fenn, is the girl who he is trying to win over, although he realizes his limitations. When this young woman is dumped, she realizes her happiness lies with the professor, who is mature enough to share his life with her. Both Mr. Davidson, and Ms. Fenn are a delight to watch.
The rest of the cast is young and attractive. Saffron Burrows, Carla Gugino, John Tenney, Matt Letscher, all make great contributions to the movie.
Although some comments in this forum are negative, the film is much better than other highly praised ones. Give it a chance to win you over.
