Storyline

An impulsive sexual encounter from her past haunts Amy, an otherwise seemingly normal young woman with a bright future and nice-guy fiancé. But her fiancé has suggested that the couple be completely honest and tell each other everything! When Amy finally relents, encouraged to tell the truth by her coworker and mother (neither of whom really knows what she has to disclose), and reveals her secret, all hell breaks loose. Written by Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Festival Director

Super Awesome Film
15 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is an incredibly good movie. I congratulate and Thanks Bobcat for this film. Despite the rather disgusting secret (not going to spoil it) If you are intelligent and can appreciate an intelligent comedy, and well written dramatic undertone, you'll really like this film.

As odd as it seems, I think the best movie to compare this too is probably Diary of a Mad Black Woman (an amazing film.. thanks Tyler Perry) I highly recommend!!! just get past the initial scene.

it says i need to take up 10 lines of text minimum, so i'll just take up space. I cant spell at all and I'm glad that IMDb has a spell check.

I also am a comedian, writer, jet fuel salesman, and MBA student. Yay. 10 lines.
