Lauren (Lauren Anne Miller) is a business woman who has just lost her job and can’t face moving back home with a very controlling Mom and Dad. Jesse (Justin Long) suggests she moves in with his friend Katie (Ari Graynor) so they can afford a really nice apartment, but these girls remember each other from college when they had a very unsuccessful meeting. Lauren and Kate hate each other, but have to move in as neither has any other options. Lauren is thinking it’s just for a little while, but finding work is harder than she thinks. When she finds out Katie is working for someone else, running a phone sex line, Lauren has the idea of using her business sense to set up their own phone sex business with hilarious results.

Hilarious? Well, maybe not so much. This movie struck me a lame on a number of levels. Number one, phone sex is rather old fashioned these days. Yeah, I know it still exists, but it’s hard to imagine it as a fresh topic for a movie. Second, they are stretching so hard for the laughs, that it seems rather painful. Seth Rogen is here as a customer, and his role is completely wasted. Not only is it very short, but really stupid and a waste of good talent. It just seems everyone is trying so hard that it just comes off as awkward. I really didn’t care for this film. I have to say it could have been a lot better with a little work on the screenplay. This seems like one of those films that someone in pre-production should have stopped and said, “Maybe we ought to send this back to the screen writers for a little more work?” Or perhaps they just decided to crank it out and let it just bomb, I’m not sure. But this is one of those films that you never heard of for good reason, and you might as well skip this unless you are really hard up for entertainment. Not good.
