Great romantic comedy for men and women!
4 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Such a fun movie!!! Fantastic cast and lots of laughs. An inspiring story told beautifully, with an insider's peek at the coolest places in downtown LA.

If you live in LA or ever intend to visit and haven't seen this movie, you are seriously missing out.

I've lived in LA my whole life and was so excited to learn about hidden gems I never knew about before.

And the chemistry between Elliot Gould and Sara Rue is terrific. Gould is hysterical, as always, and Rue comes out of her shell like never before.

Highly recommend. Good times for all.
