"Love is Ecstasy and agony, freedom and imprisonment, belonging and loneliness. It's what keeps us together when life tears us apart. So when you find that perfect man, hold on tight and then call me so I can run over there and see what he looks like and laugh because he doesn't exist you sad, perky little optimistic Suckers!!!!"
Kate (Famke Janssen)is a jaded young woman who has trouble meeting and dating guys. Throughout the movie, you get to meet several of her loser boyfriends and are subjected to Kate's cynical negative outlook on love and relationships. She says, early in the film, that she's better at giving oral sex than at understanding a loving relationship; if this is the extent of her knowledge of men, no wonder she has problems lol!
Favreau plays artist Adam Levy who meets Kate at one of his art exhibits. Soon thereafter, they begin dating and enjoy frequent sex. At first, their relationship is nothing but great and passionate. But as time passes the passion naturally fades and, eventually, Adam decides to call it quits with Kate. Overall, the movie is filled with witty dialogue, humor and honesty and takes you on a bumpy up close ride at love, heartache and the wonderful and sometimes painful art of making/breaking up.
