Storyline

Several women (and one girl) in L.A. are hiding something from someone else, or discovering something hidden from them. Maxine, a therapist, discovers her husband cheating on her with the mother of Charlotte, a 13-year old patient. Addy (the other woman) and her sister Doris have withheld from the girl the truth of her parentage. Holly, an adult film actor, isn't telling her friend Bambi how she feels about her, and another actor, Elektra, who discovers she's pregnant, hasn't told the baby's father that she loves him. A stuck elevator, a car crash, mid-air turbulence, a flight attendant, a shotgun-wielding bartender, and her roommate, who's a masseuse, help these women communicate.

Not to be missed...
24 February 2010 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

This was an interesting movie, and very nicely told as well.

I thought this movie would be a movie for women mostly, but it was quite alright for guy audiences also, as the story is touching and warm. In this movie you got laughs, tears, hopes and fears. Pretty much covers it all here, and it come out as a marvelous piece of work. Of course, I do not doubt that women audience will delve deeper into the movie and the characters portrayed herein, as the main characters are all female and the story follows their struggles to cope with the situations that life deal them.

The cast was nice, and they all portrayed their characters well, bringing them to life on the screen. You get a lot of story to each character so you can immerse yourself in their situations. Every character of the story brings with her (or him) something unique and touching to the story. The way the characters are brought to life is made in a real believable manner, so you can easy identify yourself with these people.

All story lines entwined well on the screen and there was a wholesome feeling to the entire movie. And the movie deals with real life situations, situations that we all can related to on one level or another. That is what makes the impact of this movie so profound.

I was thoroughly entertained from start till end. And I think you should give this movie a chance, it is somewhat of an underrated gem in the rough. It makes for good, solid entertainment.
