The film follows the story of a famous fictional stand-up comedian Manny Lewis, who connects with millions of fans but finds it hard to connect to one person. Manny struggles to overcome his sense of alienation and shyness, and a difficult relationship with his father, in a romantic and feel-good quest for the love of the quirky Maria. Written by
This movie is pretty much a flat and predictable romantic story line. But along the way you begin to care about Manny and Maria.
Manny - the funny man on stage before an audience but sulking and reclusive in his private life. Maria - a nice and thoughtful woman that lives a secret 'telephone' life as her job. Manny needs someone to talk to while alone in his hotel room after a show, sure enough he anonymously calls Maria while she is on the job.
As anyone could guess these two lonesome souls unintentionally meet, fall in love, split up, then get back together. Manny doesn't realize she is the 'telephone' girl until she slips up with the use of one word.
The movie is a bit too long and would have more momentum had it been edited with shorter 'happy couple scenes'. Outside of that it's an average romance flick.
