Erin: It's just sex. You have the whole rest of your life to be monogamous.
Carter: That's just it Erin. I'm ready for the whole rest of my life to begin. I want to be in love with the next person I sleep with. I was the next person I sleep with to be the last person I sleep with.
Erin: No guy hopes for that.

Accurate Look at Dating with satirical footnotes
11 April 2000 | by dave303See all my reviews

Director Stu Pollard did an excellent job in capturing the worst about dating, especially for nice guys. With so very few true gentlemen left women begin to expect less from their boyfriend and more from their friends. Therefore, the ones who actually do measure up end up being put into the "higher than boyfriend" category of friend.

I was always stunned with the response of "you are they kind of guys women marry, but not date." Carter's confusion and frustration have been felt by many, unfortunately there aren't too many Maggies in the world either. A woman who truly appreciates a romantic, traditional, gentleman, without practicing wedding vows over the first date.

Besides a few improvements that will come from another project, Stu Pollard should be praised on his first feature length film. The Louisville area was shot beautifully, the race scenes at Churchill downs, the horse farms, and the cityscape and local charm of many local hot-spots was an added bonus for anyone familiar with Louisville.
