Milk & Money & Mayhem & More
10 March 2004 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

David (Robert Petkoff) decides to leave medical school. As he explains, he had been studying to preserve lives without knowing why life is worth saving. As he is walking back home, he runs into a bevy of women who throw themselves at him. One wants him to help her write a movie, another has a mysterious box she wants him to keep for her, and so forth. After these encounters, David continues on through a journey of elevators, cows, wills, Central Park, and overnight guests. How does a story untangle itself?

This is an offbeat film with a capacity to charm and produce chuckles. Petkoff smiles throughout the strange happenings surrounding him and Calista Flockhart is engaging in a smaller role as the love interest. The setting in NYC is always a welcome one, too, while the costumes are well conceived. Fans of the routine romcom will delight in this atypical variation of the norm. Others who seek an independent film with a bit of pizazz may want to take a chance with this one, too.
