A black comedy about vanity and lust in contemporary America. In the middle of the sexual jungle of New York's singles' world, two men and two women try to achieve their dreams.Written by
Barker shot the film in NY City with a tiny crew of seven people over the period of a full year, through all four seasons. He and his staff had first interviewed nearly a thousand candidates for the leads, picked four after an arduous process, then edited the transcripts of their video interviews, and shot the final film on film carefully directing them in the new truthful, but more dramatic script.

This has just taken over from the Blair Witch Project as the most terrifying movie i've ever seen. And just like it, you come away thinking, 'Could it be real?'.
My answer? Surely not. Such pure dating horror couldn't exist in the world I live in. That's what I keep saying to myself anyway, and it helps me get to sleep most nights.
Four NY singles come across as some of the most unrelentingly relationship-resistant types to ever appear on screen. Their dances with romances seem forever doomed and watching them crash and burn through a few apparently real months in their lives will strike terror into the hearts of singles of any age. Is it a comedy? A satire? All I can say for sure is that it's surely one of the worst ever first date films I can conceive of.
Compelling viewing for the rest of us though.
