Storyline

The story of a broke but talented composer, Mike, and his search for true love. The question is, how to find it, especially when your insecurities tends to make you jealous even when a girlfriend strokes your cat. Mike's alcoholic writer father who believes all his ills will be cured by finding his runaway wife, tells him there is only one thing that makes life worth living: "the empress"; perfect sex that goes on for days with a woman so beautiful you could cry. To Mike, however, the empress is love that lasts forever, not sex that lasts for days. Written by Anette Rosberg <anette.rosberg@malmo.se>

Painfully self-conscious
29 December 2002 | by theprovincesSee all my reviews

Mike (Dinsdale) is a loquacious, self-righteous character, who is unfortunately, the central character in this film about a man's search for idealized romance. Kevin W. Smith, the film's writer and director, who no doubt identifies strongly with Mike, and his intention was to comedically depict the trials and tribulations of a single man's search for "true love."

However, he has presented the audience with a character so irritating it's completely understandable why he hasn't found a proper partner.

The film is somewhat salvaged by the presence of the charming John Hannah (although his role is a caricature) and the beautiful and talented Victoria Smurfit.
