Mindless, Harmless, slightly amusing
12 September 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Before renting this film, I read the cast list and expected to watch a hilarious comedy. What I got was a collection of vignettes on the L.A. singles scene. This film truly suffers from lack of plot.

Maybe my television screen isn't large enough to show wrinkles, but I actually thought this film was made years ago because many of the cast members such as Julian McMahon, Alan Tudyk, and Elizabeth Berkley looked younger and in better shape than they have in awhile.

Julian McMahon is believable as a narcissistic,vacuous,soap star. Alan Tudyk was delightful as an average guy looking for a long term relationship. His date with Missi Pyle was the scene that I most enjoyed and even laughed at.

Alisha Tyler's uneven acting made her character charming one moment, and a clueless stereotype, the next. While I could understand the frustrations of Elizabeth Berkely's character, I didn't feel connected to, sorry for her, or even filled with "you go girl!" when she takes matters into her own hands. There just wasn't much there - a better actress or better writing would have pulled me in. The lesbian relationship was sweet, it should have been to been farther developed.

I think I can see what Loventhal was going for here but I felt the writing needed more biting satire, more darkness, to work. A focus on the stories of one or two characters, and more connections between the others would have made a more coherent film.

If you rent this, you won't hate it, but it won't have you rolling on the floor either.
