They're in their 20s. He works in a video store; he's eager, chatty, sleeps in his car. She rents adult films, looks disheveled, rarely speaks. He chats her up, she brushes him off. He takes her address from store records and contrives to run into her. He rings her doorbell; she tells him to go away. He invents a story of a great-aunt who's died; she lets him in but holds a butcher knife between them. So it goes. He presses for a relationship; she ignores him, insults him, or yells. He's persistent, inviting her out, cooking, washing her hair. Both have demons and, as their natures become more clear, his addictive personality and her sex nausea may be on a collision course.

This was a hard movie for me to watch as I felt that Jason Ritter was really wasting his time with this young woman. Sure, he was no doubt physically attracted to her, but wouldn't he have been totally turned off by her negative language and behavior? OK, he was sleeping in his car and needed a much better place to call home. And he may have seen a future with her. But it just seemed to me...wow, how could he have put up with her? As far as movies go, it had some good qualities, but for me a movie has to be more "watchable" than this one. The drab interior of her apartment was supposed to be depressing, of course. But watching this movie on a rainy morning just made me want to turn this movie off and find a happy and uplifting concert on You Tube or talk to a happy person and get on with my life.
