In a candle-lit restaurant, couples dine. Sarah and Don, on their third date, are melting in each other's gaze. When she goes to powder her nose, a brisk salesman sits down next to Don. He's Phil, selling insurance for a broken heart. Soon Don is actually interested in the terms of the contract: counseling, a cook provided for six months, replacement of any albums lost in event of breakup. There's wardrobe consultation, patented lines to feed your friends so they won't think you blew it, and, to clinch the deal, Phil's company, Mutual Love Life, provides a loaner. But, before Don can sign on the dotted line, Sarah comes back from the ladies' room with something on her mind. Written by <>

Phil Shucky: I'm sure you're like me and most single guys, you commit a lot of time and energy to a relationship and then, boom, the big breakup happens and you're left holding the bag. Wouldn't it be nice if you had someone to hold the bag for you?
Don: What are you talking about?
Phil Shucky: I'm talking about insurance. My company's been in the business almost seven years exclusively underwriting relationships. Mutual Love Life.

Absolutely brilliant
6 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's a reason this film won so many awards. Very clever, and absolutely hilarious! I ran across this on atomfilms several years ago. Sadly, it can no longer be found there. Try to find this film, it's definitely worth a few minutes of searching. It will remind you of something that could have been written for Seinfeld. Every line of it is dripping with wry humor, and the actors really fed on the humor to make it come alive. We've all been through breakups, and once you hear the benefits of having relationship insurance, you'll wish you had had it. The sad thing is that relationship insurance sounds like a really good idea!
