Camryn Manheim early low production flick....
6 January 2019 | by ohlabtechguySee all my reviews

This movie was very uneven in script and plot development. There were points of sheer wisdom while other scenes were plain silly and stupid. Highlight was when Camryn is frantically trying to have sex on the sofa with her stud man. Hilarious!!! Ending was a miss. Lead character, David, had slugged his trick because he was suspected of having been unfaithful and then David suddenly screams from across the street that he wants to "go out" with this bruised and battered trick on date. Didn't ring true at all and was stupid. It's clear that the only person who could really act in this flick was Camryn. She was entirely natural and believable. David could act somewhat and the lady comic wasn't bad. No real message in this film except that NYC apartments are small and dingy and that even great acting can't always pull a low budget film out of the gutter. Worth seeing only because of Miss Manheim.
