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

User Reviews

Not bad at all, surprisingly mediocre + for a romantic comedy
11 October 2016 | by amirrunoronSee all my reviews

I read the previous posters review, and was so annoyed, he\she actually made me type in my user and password to review this... I will say, that the reviewer was right. This is not your generic Hollywood romantic comedy. He\she actually complained that the movie was not generic. Amazing. This is an OK movie. Its not inception, or The Hatefull Eight, but it is a nice movie to pass the time, during a sleepless night with your 3 week old baby. Was that a burn on the movie? I will say this: The editing was exceptional. It was different. And the movie took several plot turns (not twists) that actually made it an interesting watch. If you are looking for your typical romantic comedy, this is not it.This is better. (once again, this got a 6\10 from me, if you haven't noticed...)
