Jake Klein, 50, sets out to make a movie. He hires an actor to play himself and throws a big party. His idea is to shoot the heck out of it and see what he gets. But, everything spins out of control as different, unexpected people show up. Old loves are there. New loves are there. His dead father, his mother when she was young, his kids, his ex-wife. Even his younger selves, Jake at 40, Jake at 30 and Jake at 17, are there, too! And every one of them has tons of advice on how to fix his screwed up life. Jake's head reels as he staggers through what's either a mystical experience, a nervous breakdown... or both! Written by

I was invited by a friend to a private screening in Los Angeles. I have never wrote a review before but felt compelled to write about this movie.
The main character Jake was humorous yet intense and internal in his musings of himself and his desire ( maybe ) his pursuit ( possibly ) his angst, ( for sure ) Desire for love.
Jake, looked through all of his selves, at the one thing he feels was lacking ( true Love ) caught up in the lifestyle of easy pleasure, he vacillates between commitment to himself and his ways, and commitment to what he believes he is supposed to feel.
The back and forth between the characters ( of himself ) left me dizzy with thoughts of fights I've had with myself over which way to go with love interests.
The supporting cast. Virginia Madsen, Leigh and the completely sexy Jane Seymour were out of this world awesome.
I say to see it 5 times, as I believe that each time you see it, you will see a different film, based on your daily point of view.
in short, three words ex cel lent!!!
