Dale Squire is a hip, quirky, independent single gal living in the glossy city of Los Angeles. After several failed attempts in quasi-relationships, Dale concludes that finding a meaningful relationship in L.A. is impossible. But being anti-social is tough for any young girl in Hollywood. With Jill's frantic wedding right around the corner, Dale finds herself reflecting on the significance of marriage, and the mutual respect needed for a successful relationship. When Zach, a successful heartthrob rock star and old friend of Dale's finds his way back into her life, Dale slowly starts to think that maybe finding love in L.A. is possible - the only problem is that her realization might have come too late, leaving Dale in a silent love triangle, with no way out.

I recently watched Slightly Single in L.A via the HBO download. I wasn't sure what to think by the trailer, as it seemed like it was going to be a rip off of Sex In The City, or something. But the jokes in the trailer were funny, and the cast seemed great. Long and short - what an endearing, sweet, and funny movie. It's defiantly a chick-flick, and the comedy and jokes all play to a female audience. It's clever, and quick, and most certainly lives up to the title. On that note, I wasn't sure what to think of the title 'Slightly' Single in L.A., as what does 'Slightly' mean? But having lived in L.A., dated in L.A., and now having watched this film -- I agree with the writer, Christie Will, that everyone in Los Angeles is always 'Slightly' in a relationship. Like Dale says in the movie - always looking for the bigger better deal. Lacey Chabert is adorable in it - you laugh at her, with her, and then feel for her dating struggles, and life journey. Jenna Dewan is also perfectly cast as her vixen best friend, along with Haylie Duff (who is so funny as Jill). I also really laughed at Jonathan Bennett, and Chris Kattan; and Kip Pardue (as Zac) is is sexy and down to earth. I think this ensemble is one of the best I've seen on TV in a long long time. The writer and director is Christie Will, and from reading about her on-line, it seems this story might be somewhat autobiographical. I really like her sense of humour, and direction, and I plan to watch all her films now. Anyhow, I highly recommend Slightly Single in L.A. if you want to watch a real film, about dating and friendship. Note: it's only available on-line (just search).
