I had this guy leave me a voice mail at work so I called him at home and then he e-mailed me to my Blackberry and so I texted to his cell and then he e-mailed me to my home account and the whole thing just got out of control. And I miss the days when you had one phone number and one answering machine and that one answering machine has one cassette tape and that one cassette tape either had a message from a guy or it didn't. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals...

A weak story coupled with an uninspiring script and forgettable acting marks this disappointing attempt to portray the joys and pitfalls of contemporary male-female relationships. The main problem with this movie is that whenever something dramatic is about to happen, the director pulls back, completely diffusing the tension, as if the movie was meant not to offend, which it does not. The main character is a 20s something young lady suffering from low self esteem and around her revolve sub-plots involving other innocuous people seeking that special someone. Even the scenes of marital infidelity are played down to the point that they lose all dramatic punch. It's too bad because the movie had potential to make some substantive statements about contemporary relationships but potential is not the same as action as this movie so aptly shows.
