The film's director and lead actor Blayne Weaver first met actress Natalie Morales on the set of her television show The Middleman (2008) when he did a one time guest star as an alien. He offered her the role of 'Sophie' based on that experience working together. See more »
There are 2 types: there's the girl that you date and the perfect girl. The perfect girl, she's too perfect, she makes you nervous, unsure of yourself... who wants that kind of hassle? So you date the regular type, the girl who'S just off of what you want so you can be at ease and yet dissatisfied.

I should first say that I am not a movie buff or film critic but that I simply really enjoyed watching this film.
I saw this film at the Nashville Film Festival in the Spring of 2012 with no expectations going into it. I was pleasantly surprised by the writing and the feeling I got from the characters as I went through the emotions with them from beginning to end.
It's like a romantic comedy but with a little darkness to it that makes it feel more real that your typical Jennifer Aniston flick. The characters have their flaws and their quirks. You don't find yourself picking sides because everyone seems to be screwing up at one point or another which is what makes it feel so real. The plot is not cookie cutter. You don't know who will end up with who or if there is a "happy" ending because the writing doesn't lead you in an obvious path. It's so very refreshing in that regard!
There is a montage in the middle of the film where the two lead characters are spending a weekend of time together over the course of about 3-4 minutes of film and it's gorgeously filmed and so natural. I was really impressed in that moment by the actors themselves.
Also, there are no throw away characters in this cast. Everyone that was written into this script was done so for a reason, which is also refreshing.
This film was very well received at the Nashville Film Festival and there was a lot of buzz around about it after it screened. Do yourself a favor and go see it!
