Storyline

Star softball player, Lisa, has just been cut from the national team; Scholarly business man, George, has just been indicted from his father's company. With everything that they know in their lives taken from them, Lisa and George attempt to find romance. Lisa's potential boyfriend, Matty, however, is as clueless and perpetually single as they come, and George's girlfriend just dumped him. A chance hook-up through mutual friends, Lisa and George may be able to form a friendship, or more, that can help them climb out of the piles of lemons that life has handed to them.

Goofs

When Lisa is speaking to Matty on her phone while taking up a garbage bag, she knocks over the bin and it falls on its flat side, remaining stationary. The scene cuts to Matty who speaks for only a second before cutting back to Lisa. This time the bin is on its round side and is rolling back and forth, though Lisa doesn't seem to have moved and had practically no time to flip the trash bin. See more »

Quotes

Lisa: Matty, what am I doing? I caught myself. Don't judge anybody else until you check yourself out that way you are lucky if it's your fault because then you can correct the situation. I'm nervous over something that is going on with me, and I ended up with an attractive guy who you would have to be an idiot to mistake for anything more than just a fun friendship, and... and, yes amazing sex, and then I give that guy a hard time for just being who he is. Totally my fault, I'm sorry. Please forgive ...

Really bad

It's really, really bad. Doesn't make any sense. Just awful.
