Plot Summary

New Year's Eve, 1981, the Lower East Side. Monica's having a party, but as late as 9, no one's there. She stews (and drinks). Folks are on their way, all looking for love, sex, or both. En route, paths cross, gambits misfire: a performance artist, her boyfriend until today and his long-time pal Lucy, two Long Island high-school girls, two punk rockers, a bartender, a Scottish painter who's lousy in bed, a pretty face named Jack who runs when women say they love him, his cute but clumsy date Cindy, two trendy vamps, a loquacious cabby, the man-crazed Hillary, and Elvis Costello. Nearly everybody smokes, and nearly everybody scores. And all get who and what they deserve. Written by

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia During filming Casey Affleck mentioned to Kate Hudson that "Romeo and Juliet" by Dire Straits was one of his favorite love songs. Hudson secretly convinced Director Risa Bramon Garcia to play the song during Affleck's and Hudson's final scene together as a surprise for him. Casey Affleck didn't find out, until he watched the movie at the premiere. See more »

Quotes Jack: Look, what happened between us last night is like this ongoing problem with me. It happens all the time: I meet someone, we go home together, but then the next day it's...
Cindy: What? Next day what?
Jack: Well, they tell me that suddenly they've developed these feelings for me.
Cindy: What are you saying, that every woman you go home with falls in love with you or something?
Jack: Yes! It's like a curse! It never ends!
Cindy: A woman falls in love with you and you think that's a curse?
Jack: You have no idea!
Cindy: No! I don't! Because I think you're lucky! I mean, there are some people who wait their entire lives for somebody to tell them they feel that way about them, and you, you just throw it away like it's nothing, like it's a minor inconvenience! Well let me tell you something, Jack, you are cursed - just not the way you think you are.
