Because the budget was minimal, actors and crew often doubled. The Jogger and "bag girl" are played by the same actress. The production sound mixer doubled as a Janitor as well as a passenger in Patrick's bus. The script supervisor shows up as a waitress. See more »

The story for this is OK. Four guys and their warty relationships. I liked it, but my wife thought it stunk, she felt there were no likable characters. While I agree with her on that point,I especially disliked the loser teacher (reminded me a bit too much of loser teacher in Sideways) the film still did a good job of showing "the relationship" in all its screwed up glory.I also agree with a previous post regarding the in media res conceit at the start. Just plopping us down in the middle of one the affairs made it difficult to catch the drift of the story.
The extras are great, especially the how-to on getting a film produced. Icing on the cake is the soundtrack by the Hot Club of Cowtown. Great western swing which works even if you don't like the film. Only drawback with the soundtrack is that it is a bit short. Still, a great listen.
