A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover "home" on their own terms for the first time.
A psychologically troubled novelty supplier is nudged towards a romance with an English woman, all the while being extorted by a phone-sex line run by a crooked mattress salesman, and purchasing stunning amounts of pudding.
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
It's the summer of 1994, and the streets of New York are pulsing with hip-hop. Set against this backdrop, a lonely teenager named Luke Shapiro spends his last summer before university selling marijuana throughout New York City, trading it with his unorthodox psychotherapist for treatment, while having a crush on his stepdaughter.
Josh and Emily are in a relationship, but he can be inattentive and unromantic and she can shift her focus from small things to emotional issues in a moment. He invites her to drive from New York City to somewhere in Virginia to pick up a chair that he's bought on eBay for his father's birthday. On the way, he stops at his brother Rhett's, outside Philly, and invites him along. Josh tries to save money at a motel, has to negotiate with the seller of the chair and with an upholsterer, and faces tough questions from Emily. He calls her "Dude," he's moody, and it looks as if the relationship will end soon. Is there more than meets the eye here? How do people decide? Written by
My husband and I checked this film out on Netflix and what a pleasant surprise. It's really a genius little film. The actors were so real and believable and natural. The story was so simple and poignant. You had no idea where it would go next. There were truly HILARIOUS & Brilliant moments especially the motel sequence. I loved the bond between the brothers. It showed their whole relationship perfectly. The ending was also just so very perfect and real and forced. I give this film TWO MAJOR thumbs up!!!! I hope people see this screen gem!!!! It reminded me of another independent low budget film we also LOVED called Funny Ha Ha. I look forward to seeing what else comes from these two brother filmmakers. Very Sincerely, Hope Levy
