Storyline

NYC dating comedy that follows one man's hallucination-fueled post-breakup quest to find new love... and himself. When Charlie Carroll quits his job and his girlfriend on the same day, it seems as though he's finally found freedom. But after a quick dip in the dark waters of the NYC dating pool, Charlie begins to wonder if he's made a mistake. He's not equipped for single life. In fact, Charlie might not be equipped for life in general. With no job and no love, Charlie is forced to go on a journey of self-discovery so intense that he begins to suffer from surreal hallucinations, flashbacks, and sex fantasies. Will he find "the one?" Or did that ship already sail, taking with it his only hopes for relationship sanity? Written by Anonymous

Very Underrated
15 March 2017 | by jonathanhigh5-1See all my reviews

I read one review that said this is nothing new for the genre which might be the case but its the film's unique story telling and quirkiness that made it enjoyable for me. It's relatable being that I live in NYC and the dating scene here is awful. We see our main character reflect on his failed relationship, date with some successes and failures, and then finally in the end find some inner peace. I feel that the kind of advice his friends try to give him is very similar to some of the crappy advice I was given from friends and family when I became single again. I think sometimes people are just better at making things sound better than they really are. It's that message and the experiences Aaron Tveit's character has that makes this movie worth watching.
