Amazingly bad, Totally unfunny.
While there may have been the seed of a funny idea with this plot, the way it actually plays out lacks any humor whatsoever. The chubby lead actor is totally charisma-impaired and the whole thing is simply unfunny and illogical. I was amazed to see Eric Roberts involved with this tripe.
The plot, if you want to call it that consists of this: a chubby office worker and his hapless, but more socially adept friend go out every night and the chubby one uses some amazingly obnoxious pick-up lines and gets embarrassingly shot down constantly. If this sounds at funny to you, trust me it's not. The behavior is totally boorish and never once actually translates as humor. The chubby man at some point realizes (in a painfully obvious and stupid scene) that women seem comfortable with Gay men, so the next thing you know the chubby guy is wincing, limp-wristed and behaving like a total queen dressing like Wayland Flowers and wearing a boa engaging in the most odd and stereotypical behavior ever, but of course it seems to work.
This was allegedly a "true story" and if so, I'm sure it didn't play out anything like this. Like the other negative review here, I wanted to like this film, but took the rare step of just shutting it off because it was so incredibly bad.
I would be very, very suspicious of any and all positive reviews of this film given how remarkably awful this "film" is.
Avoid at all costs!
