Jonathan Rhys Meyers,
Newly graduated psychiatrist Sam and his fiancee Alex move to Los Angeles for Sam's residency and into Sam's mother's house in upscale Laurel Canyon. Only problem is, Sam's mother is still there, supposedly finishing up a record that she's producing for the band of her new boy toy, Ian. She seems more interested in smoking pot and drinking than actually working though. Alex doesn't mind but Sam is quite upset. Alex starts off focused on her work (finishing a dissertation on genomics), but is soon distracted by the rock-'n-roll lifestyle going on around her. Meanwhile, Sam is equally distracted by beautiful Israeli intern Sara. Written by

Maybe it's because I'm a prude underneath, but I find it difficult to believe that a Ph.D. candidate would be so derelict of morality that she would be seduced by her fiancé's mother and her boyfriend.
The ending was horrible. 'In over his head' was the metaphor that came to mind, as she intended. The script was horrible. Too much 'deaux ex machina' to suit me.
And no reason at all for the boy falling in love with his other medical student person. Not much of a relationship going in, if they can be twisted away from one another so easily.
Hard to make enough lines to tell you just how bad this movie is, since it was so boring I remember very little of it. Just a waste of time.
