Relationship issues arise between a researcher with a theory to explain away all his failed dating experiments, a player who wants out of the game, a deejay whose head spins with thoughts of God, a hoodrat with no street cred, a poet not-so-well-versed in art of love, and a womanipulator of men.

I had the chance to preview this movie earlier this year. Being labeled as a movie to entertain both sexes, I was a bit reluctant to watch it. I have been sucked into the romantic-dramady many times by being told it was made for all of us. SO, that being said, I was ready to be let down yet again. My final verdict .This was most definitely NOT a chick flick!!! The chemistry on screen between the actors was exceptional and the story was well thought out and lacked the usual bits of downtime. You know the type of movie that I'm referring to. Where you have 30 minutes of intense plot that leads up to 45 minutes of insane fumbling where the writers couldn't think of anything original to fill the time, Only to end in an unbelievable climax in the last 10 minutes of the film .This was not that movie! For once I was surprised at the twists and turns this plot took and the ending was up in the air until the final minute. I found myself relating to several of the characters and actually rooting for several of them in the end. I can't say if I have seen a more clever debut for a director,(The next Kevin Smith?!?). Low budget but High in quality!
