Synopsis:

Mamie is being blackmailed. This filmmaker named Nick claims to know Mamie's son - the one she gave up for adoption - but Nick won't introduce her to him unless he can film the reunion. Enter Javier, Mamie's massage therapist boyfriend, who convinces Nick to film him instead. Now they're all making a movie about massage. And 'happy endings'...

Charley has a long-time boyfriend named Gil. Their best friends, Pam and Diane, once tried using Gil as a sperm donor. They said his sperm didn't take, but Charley thinks those selfish, control-freak lesbians are lying. Pam and Diane's two-year-old son looks exactly like Gil. And it's time to set the record straight...

Jude is pissed. Not at anyone in particular. Just in general. When her cousin kicks her out of the house, Jude shacks up with Otis, who's still trying to convince his father, Frank, that he's straight. Frank's a widower. And he's rich. So Jude decides to sleep with him, too. Really. The last thing she expected was to fall in love...

What the critics are saying:

"The writer and director Don Roos's slyly subversive ensemble piece is a drama disguised as a wisp of a comedy."
- Manohla Dargis, New York Times

"As bawdy, self-conscious, jaded and still sweetly optimistic as its double-entendre of a title suggests."
- Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times

"The film rambles, but rambling with the mischievous Roos is still a tricky and winning proposition."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


This slippery but charming new movie from the director of "The Opposite of Sex" is full of dark humour and compelling insights.
