Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Four affluent New York males (including co-writers Jon Cryer and Adam Oliensis) are confused about love in the 1990s, regularly meeting to have long-winded discussions about it. There's no plot; just a series of choppily edited, unrelated vignettes of their unsatisfying love lives. Not one of the four actors manages to differentiate himself from his co-stars, all of whom are shallowly written and scripted to utter flip statements and observations that no one in real life would ever say. Roscoe Lee Browne's cameo stands out, in that he almost manages to pass off his trite dialogue.
