Jordan White and Amy Blue, two troubled teens, pick up an adolescent drifter, Xavier Red. Together, the threesome embark on a sex and violence-filled journey through an America of psychos and quickiemarts.
An average, calm mid-20s girl named Veronica restarts her dead dating life all of the sudden, but with two guys: a sensitive failed writer named Abel and an airheaded drummer named Zed. At first she despairs. Then she finds a way to date both without their finding out. Then she tells both about it. Then Abel and Zed meet each other, and, after much initial conflict, they wind up living together and evolve into a very odd yet happy threesome. However, as time goes by Veronica starts growing apart from them, while Abel and Zed become brother-like (and kid-like). So when a director starts courting a pregnant Veronica, strains ensue. Will Abel and Zed be able to grow up and save the day?...Written by

After dreading Kathleen Robertson as the self-righteous dilettante, Claire, on Beverly Hills 90210 I never would have believed that I could enjoy her so thoroughly in anything else. But, she not only changed my mind about her, she carried this movie so well that it has become one of my "guilty pleasure" favorites. She is beautiful and silly and fun, which is exactly what she needed to be to make this movie a fun romp instead of a ridiculous bore.
Matt Keeslar, Johnathan Schaech and the ever-charming Eric Mabius were excellent playing off of Robertson's Veronica. And lest we forget the sincerely lovable Mike (Kelly MacDonald, who is also sweet and charming as Pia in Entropy), who plays one of the truest best friends I have ever seen captured on film.
All in all, I think that Splendor is a great movie to watch if you are up for some lighthearted, mildly kinky, romance. Of course this film could be analyzed out the wazoo, but just sit and watch it for fun the first time, it will get you.
