Alan is a musician who leaves a busted-up band for New York, and a new musical voyage. He tries to stay focused and fends off all manner of distractions, including the attraction to his good friend's girlfriend.
The healthy living philosophies of an ultra-positive gym owner, Trevor, played by Guy Pearce, is tested against his employee Kat's more pragmatic approach, played by Cobie Smulders. It doesn't help that the two have slept together and he harbours lingering feelings for her. Her unresolved anger threatens to ruin the gym's relationship with a wealthy new client, Danny, played by Kevin Corrigan. Matters are further jeopardized when Trevor, trying to smooth the situation, gives way to his own emotions instead. In spite of their best efforts, neither is able to truly move on. The business risk Trevor is in too deep to back away from and the uncertainty of something more with Kat threatens to profoundly impact both their lives.Written by

It was just a watchable movie ,, a bit predictable, really not much to expect.
Well it started a bit slow, the plot it grows gradually until it peaks when Danny makes the surprising romantic dinner for Kat but there were absolutely no comedy bits before that for 40-50 minutes and as for a comedy genre movie this would really ruin the structure of the movie and distracted me a lot while i was so drastically trying to find a scene i could laugh at. It went all drama and just a little romance here and it was so expected the storyline itself got no surprises or any catchy flipping scenes . ,, and that was that.
As for the cast; they were all engaging but not that role attractive if i might say, Guy Pearce and Kevin Corrigan were good when i saw Cobie Smulders names on the poster i expected it to be a How i met your mother good ,, but nope .. not even a 10% of the comedy.
Overall, i watched .. yep it happened ,, but would i recommend it to my bitter nemesis .. hell yeah :D if i want him to die out of boredom .. okay maybe not that much .. but still don't expect a lot out of it.
