Storyline

A decade and a half after their seminal indie film launched meteoric filmmaking careers, Splick and Jason find themselves staring at their own individual, pre-midlife crises. Having not spoken to one another since a late-nineties falling out, they're each grappling with the challenges of stalled careers and relationships, as the hands of time creep ominously past forty-o'clock. Splick's most recent TV show, centered around his character's perverse relationship with dessert foods, is unceremoniously cancelled by the network, forcing a return to his childhood bedroom at his mother's apartment in New York. Frustrated by a barrage of comments about the "good," "funny," movies he used to make with his old partner, Jason, Splick determines to seek him out and attempt a reunion. Written by Anonymous

One of the best!
15 December 2011 | by brave_warrior2See all my reviews

This is simply one of the best love stories! Two washed up movie producers (Spleck and Jason) look for love in New York City, in two different ways!

Spleck meets this yoga instructor (Diane Davis) who he thinks is stringing him along, but she insists that he needs to curb his enthusiasm. Diane Davis plays this part!! Their attempts fail day after day, but somehow they keep each other going with banter, criticism, witticism and concern.

They're meeting about four girls per day, but with no luck. They girls on the other hand each offer the guys some advice or insight that helps them along.
