When jaded, womanizing Dave runs into his college crush, he realizes his barhopping, bed-hopping ways are unsatisfying. In order to become the nice guy he once was, he turns to the only woman he's ever truly loved to help re-train him.
When a womanizing, reality dating, television producer runs into his college crush, he realizes his bar-hopping, bed-hopping ways are leaving him unfulfilled, so he has the only woman, for whom he ever had feelings, re-train him to become the nice guy he once was.
When the gang is breaking into the studio using a stolen ID card to replace the video near the end of the movie, they swipe the card in the card reader but the magnetic stripe is visible on the shorter side of the card facing up (toward the camera, perpendicular to the card reader), and the side that is swiped is the long side of the card. Then, the reader light shows red, which is generally how readers react if the card is not recognized (the light should turn green if the card swipe is valid). The crew then enters the door anyhow.

Like Apatow, but uneven, still good though...
Loveless in LA is actually darn good. It has some nice vignette touches in the comedy, and overall mixes romance, and straight-up humor, with the kind of slacker humor that made 40 year old virgin and Apatow a hit.
We really liked it for its take on the horrors of dating in LA, it's running gags (TV exec who must extrapolate his vocabulary) and lot of small nice touches. It looks like lots of favors were called in to make this into what it is: the locations, and filming are nicely done.
Shot in no time, on no budget, it is uneven in places, but if you like romantic comedies this is much better than most, and for a first time effort the script really shines.
Sharp, funny, well written, and acted: this is slack, droll, and just plain lovely in places.
Would rent and watch again...
