When Gigi and Alex are standing in Gigi's doorway, he is standing in the hall as they speak. One shot she is standing in the doorway, the next shot she is out in the hall as well, next shot she is in the doorway again and so on until the scene is over. See more »
I would rather be like that, then be like you.
Excuse me? What's that supposed to mean?
I may dissect each little thing and put myself out there so much but at least that means that I still care. Oh! You've think you won because women are expendable to you. You may not get hurt or make an ass of yourself that way but you don't fall in love that way either. You have not won. You're alone. I may do a lot of stupid shit but I'm still a lot closer to love than you are.

A weak story coupled with an uninspiring script and forgettable acting marks this disappointing attempt to portray the joys and pitfalls of contemporary male-female relationships. The main problem with this movie is that whenever something dramatic is about to happen, the director pulls back, completely diffusing the tension, as if the movie was meant not to offend, which it does not. The main character is a 20s something young lady suffering from low self esteem and around her revolve sub-plots involving other innocuous people seeking that special someone. Even the scenes of marital infidelity are played down to the point that they lose all dramatic punch. It's too bad because the movie had potential to make some substantive statements about contemporary relationships but potential is not the same as action as this movie so aptly shows.
