Storyline

In Los Angeles, three guys with limited social lives hatch a plan to meet women: they'll issue a casting call for an independent film, interview actresses, and ask out the ones who interest them. Glenn is a nerd, but he has the office. Sherman has the idea - he's a hound, happy to lie, eager to meet and bed as many women as he can fool. Richie, who owns the camera, hopes to meet his true love. Within a few days, he's fallen for Marina Dell, new in town, with a boyfriend back east; Glenn is ga-ga for Laurel, and Sherman can't say no to the eager and adventurous Nikita. But how long can they sustain the fiction, and what about real feelings? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Okay, so it was shot on a shoe-string budget. That's not the point. Movie does elevate itself above its humble origin by showing a considerable lot of spark, even if firing in the wrong direction lots of timed. Biggest saving grace is Jenny Mollen, whom I recognized from ANGEL only because I took note of her name. Wonderful how a truly charming girl can brighten up the scene. The three miscreants have their own charm though, and as for constructive criticism, I'd simply say the producers were on the right track, as the film has a correct feel about it, especially with the hand-held camera footage, and that the girls were samplings from all walks of life.

A glaringly obvious Goof: If Reseda Camarillo reported the set-up after getting dumped, how come Nikita comes walking in immediately in the same scene as Reseda's getting dumped? Sherman still wears the lipstick smeared on him from the encounter as he switches targets. Filming clearly just took an efficient shortcut.

People renting this one know very well what they are renting. Don't complain if the content is kinda amateurish- looking. It's kinda how it is supposed to look. It is a fake casting agency with minimal equipment. So don't take your ire out on the poor defenseless movie. It is actually quite well done. The laugh is on the kind of reviewers who would say 1 - 10. They're in a bad place.
