Storyline

Ambitious young Manhattanite and urban conservationist Beth wants it all: a good job, good friends, and a good guy to share the city with. Of course that last one is often the trickiest of all. Beth falls hard for Tommy, a sexy, young Wall Street hot-shot. But just as everything seems to be falling into place, complications arise in the form of Tommy's sensitive and handsome co-worker Daniel. Beth soon learns that the game of love in the big city is a lot like Wall Street -- high risk, high reward and everybody has an angle. Written by Roadside Attractions

An enjoyable drama
20 November 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a successful young man working in Wall Street. His love life is put into jeopardy when he tries to be helpful by hiring a nerd for his sales team.

"The Good Guy" is an enjoyable and captivating drama about urban lives of young people. It has very good character development. Their work, social and love lives are portrayed in an ordinary and believable manner that makes them so real. They could have been people we know around us, and viewers can relate to them easily. All three lead actors and actresses sculpt their characters in an authentic manner. The way the characters change as the film progresses is also very interesting. This makes the story even more engaging, as viewers are left to wonder what will happen to them.
