While smoking a cigarette on the roof of the building of the agency, Jack meets the aspirant actress Jill that has just arrived in New York and is seeking a job.

When he takes Jill home, he finds that she lives in a very low-budget hotel and out of the blue, he invites her to stay in the guest room of his fancy apartment for a while. Jill changes the behavior of Jack that becomes happier, and proposes Jack to write together a manifesto where the first rule is "be honest". However, she omits to Jack that she is sick with cystic fibrosis and she would have only a couple of years more. When Jack discovers that Jill is ill, he feels betrayed with her violation of their first rules, and they split. But Jack is ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Jack: Hey, George... How does this relationship nonsense usually work?
George: Usually, you go on a couple of dates, see if you like each other. Eventually you have sex.
Jack: Right. I, uh... I sort of skipped the whole dating thing. So what then?
George: And then, if you're happy with the action, you become boyfriend and girlfriend. It's really fun for, like, three months, and then you realize it's work. Then you dump her. Or not.
Jack: Okay, let's say not.
George: You move in together.
Jack: I did that.
George: Right. Well... Then you get married....

Don't waste your time
2 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Freddy Prince Jr., was alright - nothing special, but the girl who played Jill is just terrible! I couldn't stand looking at her the whole time, and I had to switch off the film. She is a terrible actress, could barely fake a smile, let alone her face looking evil. Those eyebrows are way-arched, and her smile is like some evil grin. She belongs in a horror flick.

Apart from the awful acting from the girl, there was just zero chemistry between the two actors. Both were distant and looked bored. The editor splashed a few scenes together to make it look like some fairytale romance was taking place, but it was so clear there was a whole lot of nothing happening between the two.

This film is one massive cliché - do not waste your time.
