Calm and quiet Daniel starts on Wall Street. His womanizing colleague, Tommy, encourages him to meet women. He unknowingly meets Tommy's girlfriend, Beth, and ends up in her 5 women book club. Will he find the woman?
Ryden Malby graduates from college and is forced to move back into her childhood home with her eccentric family, while she attempts to find a job, the right guy, and just a hint of where her life is headed.
A supposed noire thriller that ends up coming across as a fruity and bizarre dark comedy for most of the film's running time. An event eventually occurs which then plunges the film into a dreary vortex of soulless performances, weak and uninspired dialogue, and all round sheer mediocrity. Everything that made the film bearable up to that point - the awkward yet authentic dialogue, the quirky characters and comedic cockups - suddenly dissipates into thin air leaving behind a slightly more focused film but also an ultimately depressing, boring and uneventful one. The ending's just as confused as the rest of the film. Instead of being some kind of ironic wink and nod , it feels more like a desperate attempt at trying to salvage something from the unfocused mess that's occurred over the past 80 minutes.
