This is a great first date movie. While it deals with the easiness with which people connect physically/sexually, it shows the difficulty in making emotional connections in the society we live in. Yes, the sex is real (including the so-called "money shots") but never feels exploitative. Even though using amateur actors, there is a stark reality to the performances and dialog. And the ending actually adds a glimmer of hope to the future of relationships, leaving one with a very romantic feeling.

I LOVE this film. Definately one of the best pictures I've seen this year. I actually did take a 1st date to it. Paul's review is right on target.

Not bad.
Though it's not my kind of film.
Worth checking if you are curious. Noticing a fair few senior citizens going for this one (mostly male). But it's all good no harm in that.
