Light drama a window on human interaction
10 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

The story centres on a group of 30-something friends in Toronto. Two of the couples break up, causing ripples through the group. We watch to see who will get back together, who will learn something from the experience, and how the group will survive and grow.

One of the couples who breaks up is Jack and Meagan, who have been married for two years. Jack begins an affair with a waitress at a club at which the characters spend an inordinate amount of time. We discover during the movie that this is not the first time he has cheated on Meagan, and that in fact that he was living with another woman in the group at the time he began seeing Meagan. In response to this, Meagan leaves Jack and jumps immediately into the arms (and bed) of another of their friends, Jim. Whether she will go back to Jack as she has done before is one of the main plot lines.

The other couple who breaks up is Sean (played by the adorable Ennis Esmer) and Carol. Sean has loved Carol since "the first day of grade nine", despite the fact that she is physically, emotionally, and mentally unattractive. She is the sour bitch of the group, and he the doormat onto whom she pours most of her venom. She takes a new, young lover and moves out. During the movie, Carol has altercations with several people in the group, and learns something about herself. Whether she goes back to Sean - and whether he wants her back - is another main plot point.

Another friend, Caprice, must decide between her former lover (the aforementioned cheater, Jack) and the tom-catting Gordo.

The characters appear to be making decisions about the quality of their relationships and what they want and need from other people for the first time.

Though the movie is described as a romantic comedy, it is not funny at all. It might better be described as light drama. Though it doesn't shed any new light on human interaction, it is a window into how people who have been friends forever must eventually grow up and make adult decisions.
