Storyline

Jim, 35 and never married, has a drawer full of photos of ex-girlfriends. He'd like permanence, but can't find the right women. Is it him? He seeks advice from his father, his happily-married brother, his priest, and from Teresa, his close friend at the Manhattan celebrity TV show where he works. She's about to marry Tom and is full of opinions for Jim. Three things happen over a day or two: Jim rehearses breaking up with his current fling, he meets a dazzlingly beautiful neighbor, and Tom asks for help telling Teresa his true feelings. Can Jim transform himself from someone who's good at writing break-up lines into someone who can find and express his heart? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great Flick
22 November 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

A romantic comedy that made me laugh and cry......And I'm a man! Damn this movie for making me feel things. A very fresh take on the romantic comedy genre. You feel like the characters are your own friends by the end of the movie. But then when the credits roll, you realize that you are still a very lonely person with no friends. Seriously though, it was very refreshing to see a man in a romantic comedy that shows more than one angle of what we are thinking. The relationship between the lead character Jim and his father was warming, funny, and had much more truth in it than you normally see in a movie. I highly suggest seeing this movie. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll question your masculinity, you'll hit on the girl next to you, she'll turn you down, and you'll know that all things are right with the world again.
