When Mark (Greg Nemer) decided to become a psycho therapist, he didn't
anticipate there would be one group of people who would make his job as
miserable as possible: His patients. Now though that he has made a name of
himself as a therapist and likes his reputation and paycheck, as well as a
gorgeous wife, Eileen (Laurie Clemens Maier), it's too late to start anew.
So he decides to have his little revenge on those patients who annoy him
the most by giving them bad advice. Jason (Ben Whitehair) and Gia
(Giovanna Leah) are at the center of his attention, as they seem to not
take his advice, ever, and seem to be unwilling to actively work on their
relationship, which is quite obviously in tatters. So Mark figures the
best idea would be to break them up, and thus he invents the "honesty
therapy", an approach that's supposed to bring them closer to each
other by having them tell each other what they hate about the respective
other - of course, such a therapy is doomed to fail, and Mark knows it -
but once Jason and Gia have thrown insults at each other that ought to
strain what they had beyond breaking point, they realize they have started
to talk to one another again, and they pick up the momentum and start
being nice to each other - much to Mark's dismay, as this curiously enough
hurts his professional pride ...

Basically, one heck of a fun movie, thanks to some really
witty writing and a deliberately mean approach to its subject matter.
Plus, what the film might lack in production value is easily made up by
the film's love to proper storytelling, which also includes fleshed-out
characters one can just love or love to hate, played by a solid ensemble
cast who all seem to have fun doing what they do without ever going
Definitely worth a watch!
