Editorial Reviews

Sensitive but unsuccessful New York magazine columnist Michael (James Lorinz King of New York, Frankenhooker) looks on with hopeless envy as his self-confident, shallow brother Frankie catches all the women, makes all the money and never feels a pang of remorse at his amoral behavior. Enter Lila (Barbara Sicuranza), a tough, sexy bartender. Initially Frankie's got her, and Michael gets fixed up with her biker chick roommate (Joan Jett, of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts). Then, through a twist of fate, Michael finds himself vying with Frankie for Lila's affections, and the results are both riotously funny and touching. Filmmakers Roy Frumkes and Rocco Simonelli (writers of the cult hit The Substitute) have created a romantic comedy... for people who hate romantic comedies! Bonus features include: Audio Commentary, Deleted & Extended Scenes, Outtakes, Theatrical Trailer.

I bought this DVD for the sole reason that Joan Jett was in it. Unfortunately she wasn't in the film as much as I'd hoped she'd be, but it was still a pretty good movie. It took me a little bit to get used to the way it's shot, the camera style, I guess it would be, but I enjoyed it. Also really enjoyed the outtakes and making of the movie in the special features, shows some more of Joan Jett and was fun to watch. Good movie and worth it especially for JJ fans!

This is a great indie flick, nice story, exceptional acting and a really sweet story. Joan Jett is a really good actress, I wish she would do more. She is Hilarious as the hard ass vixen roomate who has a CRAZY sexual encounter with the lead male. A Blind Date gone horrid! Barbara S who i have never seen before to me is a cross between Parker Posey and Martha Plimpton, but a MUCH better Actress. Her performance is great. She is funny, tender, dramatic and sensitive. I would look for other movies and watch just because she is in them. If you want a light and fluffy movie this isn't it, but if you want a realistic movie about complex relationships pick this one up. You wont be sorry.

Duane L. Martin, Rogue Cinema:

This is an indie style film, and to be honest, it looks damn good visually for a film that was shot on video. On every technical level, this was a really well made film that had some excellent camera work, lighting and sound, and was paced quite well throughout. The film and the story are enjoyable, and some of the performances in the film, most notably Robert Mobley's portrayal of Frankie, are really well done and engaging. I think that most people who sit down to watch this one will feel pretty good about the experience. This release is being put out by Synapse, who have long been known for the quality of their releases. This one is no exception. As I said above, the visual quality is great, and it comes with several special features, including audio commentary, a "making of" featurette, deleted and extended scenes, outtakes and the theatrical trailer.

For a Fan of Joan Jett, this movie will give you new insights into her personality. Yes, it's only a movie and not real life, but Joan is there with her Jersey/York accent and that smile that is all hers. You can see in her eyes that she is really into acting the part. The out-takes should have been in the movie and not cut, but that's show biz. I don't remember much about the story line, I only watched to see Joan at her best doing what she enjoys. This movie is a must for the true Fans of Joan Jett. Also see Joan in The Light of Day, another good film for Jett Fans.

Not the best movie I have ever seen but if you are a Joan Jett fan it's a must see! For me she was really the highlight of this movie. The outtakes and the bridesmaid's dress were worth the price of the dvd!
