Plot Summary

Annette and Elliot are a mostly happy, moderately neurotic Los Angeles couple. Maybe Annette doesn't enjoy game nights or taco stands as much as Elliot enjoys them, but no relationship is perfect, right? Rather than embracing their differences, Annette can only compare her relationship to her friends' relationships that portray happiness. This cannot be endorsed by Annette's beautiful but romantically troubled best friend, Baker, who is very well-versed on the bleakness of the LA dating scene.

    As a satire about L.A. living, the movie delivers its fair share of zingers. With a script that recalls Whit Stillman and TV sitcoms, Morgan’s crisp dialogue sometimes hits its target. show more

    Steve PondTheWrap

    This is a gentle, genial update, consistently amusing and always likable; it may not break new ground, but it finds enough of new jokes, and Morgan’s obvious love of language gives it an extra charge. show more

    If you’re going to attempt a quasi-farcical look at the behavior of thirtysomething strivers in Hollywood, you need to cut more sharply and dig more deeply than does L.A. Times. show more
