A Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
Twenty-something native Vermonter Mirabelle Buttersfield, having recently graduated from college, is finding her new life in Los Angeles not quite what she was expecting or hoping. An aspiring artist, she is barely eking out a living working as a clerk at the women's evening gloves counter at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills and thus she can barely make the payments on her massive student loans. She treats her job with a certain distance, often daydreaming as she watches the life of the rich as they shop at the store. She has made no friends, including from among her Saks colleagues, and thus lives a solitary existence, which does not assist in her dealing with her chronic clinical depression. So it is with some surprise that two men with a romantic interest in her enter her life almost simultaneously. The first is poor slacker Jeremy, who works as an amplifier salesman/font designer. Mirabelle continues dating Jeremy as only a relief to her solitary life, as Jeremy doesn't seem to ... Written by
For the scene in Mirabelle's bedroom where the cat jumps on the bed and watches her and Jeremy, there were actually two cats used. The director explains in his commentary that one could jump but never watched, and the other was good at watching but couldn't jump. See more »
When Jeremy come back from getting a condom you can see Mirabelle sitting cross-legged with her elbows at her knees in the mirror reflection, but the immediate shot afterwards shows her with her elbows resting on her upper thighs and positioned much closer to the wall. Then she leans back with her legs to the right, but on the close-up, her legs are now going to her left. See more »
Congratulations. You've officially gone on a date with Jeremy. Don't forget to hold the handle when you lock the door.

Do not expect it to be neither a fun, interesting nor sad movie
I just got home after watching it, and I really think I lost a couple hours with something pretty much meaningless.
I thought it was going to be a fun movie, but it ended up being a "nothing" movie. At least, wait until you can see it at home, so you don't regret about paying too much and you can stop watching it at any time.
Anyway, I'm really surprised people are giving it good reviews. Could be that I wasn't in the right mood, although I don't think it was that.
This had to be a 10 lines of text review, and I don't think it is worth writing that much about this movie. Just wanted to alert people about what to expect.
