A New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment) apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer) and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as the possibility of realizing them dwindles.
While Danny is on the phone with Eliza (who is at Bard College), he states, "I might go stay at Jean's in Rochester for a while. I'll be closer to you...". The distance between Rochester and Bard College is actually significantly greater than New York City to Bard. See more »
Brian and James, who you've met...
Very charming interracial, homosexual couple, and smart about the work. They were familiar with Gilded Halfwing.

The sets were nice. As were the locations. But as a character study, or a study in family dynamics and dysfunction, we've been there before, many times, and this plows no new ground. All the supposedly clever repartee was vacuous bloviation, making little sense. The only actor who came out of this disaster unscathed was the one who brilliantly portrayed Sigourney Weaver.
The opening sequence, chewing up 4 valuable minutes of a movie goer's time, with Adam Sandler looking for a place to park in Manhattan, set the tone for the movie. After that scene you thought that if the movie didn't get any better it would be unbearable.
The movie was unbearable.
