Storyline

When it comes to romance, Missy's attitude has always been whatever. After all, her artistic career is flourishing...her spacious New York City loft is fabulous...and her relationship with a married man is totally uncomplicated-what more could a modern girl want? But then Missy meets Brat, who's sweet, genuine and shares her fondness for 70's sitcoms. Unfortunately, he's also dating her pal Spaz. When Missy and Brat unexpectedly fall for each other, will she lose her identity...and her best friend? No matter how far you run, true love always finds you.

Cynthia does Sarah Jessica with jugs
11 September 2002 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

Successful New York artist encounters a bunch of weird guys (do artists know anybody else) and wants to maintain her independence by having sex without falling in love. Sound familiar? You bet, it is just about every episode of "Sex and the City", without the female support group, the guys pick up the ball.

Although rather mundane, the character interactions manage to bring a smile to my face, like an episode of "Friends".

Definitely worth a rental, if you want a "Chick Flick" without a whole hell of a lot of chicks to muck it up.
