Storyline

Three women approaching 30 find themselves in varying degrees of unfortunate romance. The first still has emotional scars from her mother's long ago suicide and can't keep from noticing her photographer boy friend's not-too-furtive looks at his teen daughter's obviously nubile body. The second has just been married seven months and finds her husband is a credit card addict who quickly ruins their credit rating. The last is separated from her philandering husband and is having a series of revengeful affairs that ultimately lead to a beating by one of her pick-ups.

How's your endurance?
18 May 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

There weren't many of us in the theatre to begin with (late Monday night on Sunset), but about half of those in attendance walked out before the finish. It was very aimless and character development was non-existent. Visually, in my opinion, there were some merits but that was primarily because I have just moved to LA and I was trying to pinpoint the locations of many of the scenes. Also, some nice footage during their trip up the coast and in San Francisco.

Overall though - it was pretty empty. Save your money.
