This is a classic urban love triangle, the first effort by novice writer/director Julio DePietro. While the leads are attractive enough, there's nothing particularly original about the screenplay, DePietro's amateurish direction gives us overacted performances, the romantic chemistry between Bledel and Greenberg is minimal, the trading room scenes are straight out of Wall Street, and the mediocre production values identify this as yet another low-budget independent production. Clearly, Bledel, Porter and Greenberg are talented actors, and they did the best with what they were given. DePietro needs to choose either writing or directing... clearly he cannot do both.
