Claire Goldstein is a gifted pianist, but the same week that none of her friends pass a major competition, including her boyfriend Jeremy, he dumps her. An earthquake in San Francisco damages her apartment, so she must cross town to live with her parents. Her sister is about to get married; her mom is into the occult; her dad is withdrawing and losing his job. Claire obsesses about Jeremy, despite her girlfriends' advising her how to interest other men ("look mysterious, like Mona Lisa") and taking her to parties. Her sweet teacher, Bennett, gets her auditions, but she blows them off. Then, she meets Eddie. Is he the key to her rejoining the human race?

There are a few homages to the sitcom Friends
(1994) in this movie. Elliott Gould
and Marlo Thomas
play husband and wife in this movie and both played Ross's and Monica's father, Jack Geller
and Rachel's mother, Sandy Green
respectively. When Bo and Bennett are talking in the bedroom, Bo said that he changed his name to 'Barry' because 'Bo' wasn't a good name for a dental practice. In Friends
(1994), Rachel's ex-fiancé is also named Barry and he is also a dentist. See more
