Storyline

It's noon at a remote foothill park in Los Angeles: April is there to commit suicide; Krysta and Dennis tryst in his car while her co-worker Ian waits in a dog-shampooing van; Dennis's wife Peg and her best friend Claire have followed Dennis and plan guerrilla warfare; and four 20-somethings from the same office are talking in a van. April seeks Ian's help (lubricant, a hose, a lighter) and he asks if he can join her; Claire and Peg trap the lovers in Dennis's car then have a heart to heart; Nathan and Babar disclose to Meredith and Cheryl that they are nudists while Meredith insists the men are gay. Disrobing and disclosures follow. Is it just another day in L.A.? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

charming, funny and smart
14 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I live in Las Vegas and saw this movie yesterday at the 2006 CineVegas movie festival. The director, majority of the actors and producer were all at the screening to answer questions and talk about the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and could not stop laughing. For the most part its a comedy but also deals with people finding themselves and having realizations that life its self is what you make of it. Like the tag line says 10 people, 5 cars, 1 day....only in L.A...this makes for a funny, smart and charming movie. And having Trent Ford acting in it doesn't hurt.(because i find his to be very cute) Billy Baldwin, Cheri Oteri and Ricki Lake all do a great job at making their characters have quirky personalities and make us go" oh yeah i know someone like that". In the end, i say go see this if you get the chance, you wont be disappointed.
