Amelia (Catherine Keener) is jealous when her closest friend and roommate, Laura (Anne Heche), moves out to live with her fiancé. Suddenly alone, Amelia takes a pessimistic look at her own life. Her pet name for Bill (Kevin Corrigan), the last guy she dated, is the "Ugly Guy"; her conversations with her ex-boyfriend, Andrew (Liev Schreiber), usually devolve into name-calling; and her beloved cat has come down with cancer. She then tries to put aside her envy and rely on Laura for support.
