Of late, Phil (Aaron Ginn-Forsberg) has fallen out of love with his
lovelife: He and his wife Evelyn (Chauna Mae) have been married for more
than a decade, have a son, a nice home, and don't really fight that often
... but then again, the romance is gone, the spark isn't really there
anymore, and they never want to have sex at the same time anymore, even.
Now Phil wants the romance and the sex back in his life again, but he
doesn't want to leave his wife and child (and life) on one hand, nor visit
a hooker or become a sugar daddy to a young sextoy on the other - so he
joins a dating site to meet women in the same situation he is, married
women who don't want to get attached to their new dates, but want more
than just sex. After a few colossal blunders, Phil meets Angela (Kimber
Leigh), a woman who like him doesn't find fulfillment in her marriage (2
kids) anymore but doesn't want to give up the life she's having, just
wants a few hours of romance and bedroom fun. It works perfectly, too ...
but perhaps too perfectly, because while his wife's on a vacation, Phil
gets himself two more girlfriends via the website and thinks he's on top
of the world - before the emptiness of his new affairs has him crashing
down again ... and he crashes even more when he want to push his
relationship with Angela to the next level, and she bails out, as this is
against what they agreed on - NO real feelings involved -, and it freaks
her out, actually.
Phil has learned a lot (but by no means everything)
from all of this, and he decides to delete his account at the dating
website he's been using for augmenting his sex life ... when he finds out
his wife has been using he exact same site to boost her sex life ...
matter what you thought when you read above synopsis, this movie will very
probably surprise you: While it might read like at worst a conveyor belt
romantic comedy and at best a Woody Allen reiteration, it's neither, but a
piece of highly inventive and very unusual moviemaking: It's a piece of
film carried by a very cynic (and quite hilarious) narrator (Matthew Wade)
and an approach to storytelling that's highly associative rather than
linear (though the film does bring its story across very comprehensibly),
it doesn't shy away from employing absurd dream sequences featuring many a
weird or at least unexpected character (including Black Jesus and Abraham
Lincoln), and the humour doesn't give a shit about being politically
Now you might call this a "romantic comedy" by
definition, but in my honest opinion, especially people who don't enjoy
romantic comedies will dig this!
