Storyline

At age 55, Philadelphia CEO Paul Grecco decides to make changes in his life, including the sale of his company, and that terrifies him. He was right to be terrified, because the new owners force him to retire early. His sister, Elise decides that the best things for him is a puppy she has gotten him, and dating the women that Elise sets Paul up with. It's funny though, but Paul finds himself disinterested in the women Elise fixes him up with, and oddly fascinated by a young man he meets while walking his new puppy in the park across from his condo. Paul has never really thought about dating or sex before, with anyone, so now what should he do? Written by trivwhiz

Trivia

'Jon Lindstrom (I)' portrays Paul, who has not had a dog since childhood, retires and is given a dog by his sister, and must adjust, begrudgingly to having a dog as an adult, which is ironic considering Lindstrom appeared in Must Love Dogs (2005). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Paul: [voiceover] My day starts at 6:30 AM. I don't need an alarm clock. I wake up every day and dress for my role as CEO. That means fifty tailored suits at all times. Right now I have fifty-four. Dress shirts - very important: one-twenty-eight; crisp white - always best; an occasional pale yellow or blue. Now, a tie says everything about a man. Silk. Ties should only be silk: eighty stripes; a dozen solids. Oh, and one rogue paisley my sister bought me in Palm Beach - probably hammered ...

Painful and stereotypical
27 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gave this movie a 2 because at times Wendy Malick was watchable. The rest was painful at best. The dialogue is horrible and trite. The acting wasn't nearly good enough to save the dialogue. The characters were false and empty at best. They were either boring and made no sense or over the top and made no sense. All in all - OUCH! The premise was interesting, but there wasn't enough motivation to move the story along. I think the writer might have been trying for one of those quirky, independent, everyone is connected whether they know it or not movies - but if so it hasn't been achieved.

The only saving grace of this movie was Wendy Malick. She is funny and fun to watch. Her portrayal of Elise is great. When she shares a scene with others (such as Chris Murrah, who plays Andy) her performance and what she brings to the role elevates the performances of the others.
