Plot Summary
Neal Downs (Aaron Stanford) is a slacker singer-songwriter who makes his living managing a restaurant that specializes solely in cereal.

When a similarly themed eatery opens nearby, Neal finds that his lady is happy to side with the competition.

    While Stanford is more annoying than endearing as the self-righteous slacker, the charming Deschanel provides the film with its few moments of genuine fun with her offbeat turn as the wily, put-upon girlfriend. show more
