Storyline

It's noon at a remote foothill park in Los Angeles: April is there to commit suicide; Krysta and Dennis tryst in his car while her co-worker Ian waits in a dog-shampooing van; Dennis's wife Peg and her best friend Claire have followed Dennis and plan guerrilla warfare; and four 20-somethings from the same office are talking in a van. April seeks Ian's help (lubricant, a hose, a lighter) and he asks if he can join her; Claire and Peg trap the lovers in Dennis's car then have a heart to heart; Nathan and Babar disclose to Meredith and Cheryl that they are nudists while Meredith insists the men are gay. Disrobing and disclosures follow. Is it just another day in L.A.? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Very funny
17 June 2006 | by crispylapSee all my reviews

Saw at Cinevegas film festival - am going to see again at Outfest in July, as I live in LA.

Reminded me of those fun ensemble movies I watched growing up (16 Candles, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Caddyshack). Multiple stories, multiple characters and a lot of laughs. As with most of those multiple-storyline movies, there are always the occasional 'clunker' moments... but those moments are few-and-far between, and are outweighed by a good rhythm to the movie, great comic timing, and a lot of heart.

Also, I think it's safe to say I developed a huuuuuuuuuuge crush on actress Dagney Kerr - who plays suicidal April in the movie. I challenge anyone with a pulse to resist falling under her spell here... Really really lovable, adorable, squeezable and any other '-able' you can think of.

I think most people will find this movie a lot of fun - a rare comedy that is actually really funny.
