About this movie

After four years of chasing his stand-up comedy dream in Los Angeles, 34-year-old Scott Rollins (Ben Schwartz, Parks And Recreation) has crashed and burned. Left with little money and a fledging "career," Scott has no choice but to regroup, lick his wounds, and return to his parents' house in Long Island. While trying to figure out what to do next, he pines after his ex, Becky (Eloise Mumford), a successful photographer who has since married a former mutual friend. On a night out at a local bar, Scott strikes up an unlikely friendship with a very flawed, but very charming dermatologist, Marty (Billy Crystal, When Harry Met Sally...), who has a few regrets of his own. Marty and Scott help each other find the courage to face the failures in their lives and take stock in what their futures could bring.

If the direction and cinematography had been above mediocre/pedestrian, this would easily be 5 stars. The performances and the script were phenomenal. Easily ranks up there with one of my favorite films where not a lot happens but a lot happens in the lives of the two main characters. And again, the performances from all involved were fantastic. Ben Schwartz and Billy Crystal are perfectly cast and bring a realism to this unlikely friendship that has both comedy and drama. It's laugh out loud funny in many parts but when this film brings the drama, it brings the drama. Watch this film, it's truly a great film about second chances, both the ones we think we want and the ones life gives us.
