Storyline

An L.A. artist with everything seemingly going for him suddenly finds a change in his life when an art curator cancels his upcoming one-man show. His model girlfriend immediately leaves him. Forced to move back to his old job at a pizza parlor and into a rundown tenement where a number of oddballs wander the hall including a lonely middle aged woman who makes spam casseroles for all the bachelors, a daffy prostitute, and a Spanish Don Juan who wanders the halls in his bathrobe. Then a young Colorado woman moves across the hall and things look up, until he learns that she has a total backwoods quality that he doesn't know how to handle. When he dumps her, the whole building turns on him. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

An indie romantic comedy that's a cut above
26 April 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

The downside is that this is pretty much another indie romantic comedy about a backed-up artist who meets a girl and just can't quite get his act together.

The upside is that it's at times very funny, with quirky, well-drawn characters and terrific performances, particularly by a pre-"You Can Count on Me" Mark Ruffalo.

On the whole, it's worth checking out.
