Young filmmaker seeking a break AND Mr Right in NYC
David (Anthony Rapp), a young, gay, aspiring filmmaker moves to NYC, advertises for a roommate and meets Gwen (Camryn Manheim) who has just left her husband. Together they face the trials of being single in the city.
When Walter(Joseph Fuqua), a former tenant of David and Gwen's apartment, leaves his girlfriend and has a bit too much scotch he uses his old key to let himself in, falls asleep on their sofa and soon Gwen has a lover.
David is not so lucky. He continues his search through a series of cameo appearances, that includes Stephen Spinella , a man too fond of hummus, John Cameron Mitchell, a literature quoting man too fond of fruit, and David Drake, a man of too few words.
When David meets Michael (David Courier), he realizes this may be the one, but his love interest seems a bit too interested in sex clubs.
While David is searching for the man of his dreams, he's also trying to break into filmmaking. One night on the subway he meets Julie Halston (as herself) a successful stand-up comedienne. Curious, he attends one of her shows and then gets to know her better after she targets him during the show. What David learns from Julie is not only about success in show business but about sucess in life as well.
Overall, the movie is quirky and interesting throughout. The story is generally well told and you do care what happens to these characters. I did have some problems understanding Gwen's actions toward the end of the film. This may have been the fault of the film or just the faulty understanding that a gay man has for a woman in her position.
