Storyline

Sol Goode, a charismatic L.A. twenty-something, has always relied on charm, good looks, and fast talk to glide through life. But his luck may have run out; faced with eviction from his hipster apartment, totaling his car, and the threat of having to find a real job, Sol realizes that maybe the life he's been leading is no longer making him happy. Through this self-examination, he finds that being a womanizing hustler is an unfulfilling life and he will truly be happy with his best friend Chloe, who, unfortunately, knows him all too well. The result is a wickedly funny, heart-felt story as Sol tries to win her over. Written by Anonymous

Post orgasmic disgust
30 April 2005 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

Kudos to writer/director/star Danny Comden for this unique look at modern day dating, and the hidden aspects to male vanity.

Balthazar Getty, as an anti-hero of sorts, portrays slacker Sol Goode, who's world gets thrown into upheaval when his cousin Happy(Schaech) visits. Sol is a struggling actor who continuously gets refused audition after audition, yet Happy lands a gig on his first try. You'll bust a gut when you find out why Schaech's character is called Happy.

Sol begins to re-evaluate his life when he can't pay the rent, and can't come to terms with his love for his best friend Chloe, well played by Katharine Towne.

Danny Comden gets the most out of his cast, as Getty, Cheri Oteri and Towne were all brilliant. Surprisingly enough, Jamie Kennedy handled his role well also. Danny Comden, as the identity challenged Cooper, proved to be a solid actor as well.

Several solid cameos by Jared Leto, who was a riot, and one of America's favorite sex symbols, Carmen Electra. The only thing I didn't like about this film was the presence of non-actress Tori Spelling. Other than that, this is a can't miss comedy.
