A group of interconnected, Baltimore-based twenty- and thirty somethings navigate their various relationships from the shallow end of the dating pool through the deep, murky waters of married life, trying to read the signs of the opposite sex–and hoping to be the exceptions to the “no-exceptions”; rule. Gigi just wants a man who says he’ll call–and does–while Alex advises her to stop sitting by the phone. Beth wonders if she should call it off after years of committed single hood with her boyfriend, Neil, but he doesn’t think there’s a single thing wrong with their unmarried life. Janine’s not sure if she can trust her husband, Ben, who can’t quite trust himself around Anna. Anna can’t decide between the sexy married guy, or her straightforward, no-sparks standby, Conor, who can’t get over the fact that he can’t have her. And Mary, who’s found an entire network of loving, supportive men, just needs to find one who’s straight.

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this movie. I thought it could go two ways, one that there is an amazing group of actors in this movie so of course it will be good or two just because there is a good cast doesn’t mean it will be any good. I thought it was a good mix of a love story but also a lot of drama too. It did remind me a bit of the movie “Love Actually” but I can see a guy or a girl wanting to see it and really liking it. The story was well written as well as the acting and I liked the way the movie ended up too. I would recommend this to anyone actually because you can relate to this weather you’re in a relationship or not and I would like to buy it on DVD when it comes out.
MY RATING: B+
