It's Christmas, and Michael (Matthew Simmons) has just dumped his batshit crazy girlfriend (Camila Banus) while Chris (Justin Price) is too much of a womanizer to really know how to find love - and yet the two of them get an ultimatum by their boss (Eric Roberts) to get into a serious relationship till the end of the year or say good-bye to their jobs (as copywriters for breaking up cards, ironically) ... and then their best friend James (Eddy Herrero) accidently dumps his fiancée Vanessa (Aeriél Miranda) and gambles away her engagement ring while drunk - and needs it back till new year, otherwise he can forget her forever and loses the respect of her father (Billy Blanks) even more.

Problem number one, love can't always be found where one's looking for it, so Michael at first confuses the woman (Alisondra Alexander) he falls for for a prostitute, while Chris finds out he feels something else for the neighbour (Taylor Carter) he thinks he hates.

Problem number two, James has lost the engagement ring to gangster bigshot Dab (Brian Hooks), who won't give it back unless James pays up his gambling debts (which James can't afford) or gets him a certain extremely rare comicbook - and now James, Michael and Chris have to relie on their ingenuity to get that - which is limited as it is, and what's worse, Dab really wants that comicbook, and has means of persuasion ...

 

A very interesting little film about a big topic - love - that works quite so well because it doesn't try too hard ... doesn't try too hard to give simple answers to complex questions that is, or explain things away, instead the film gives its story (or rather intertwining stories) room to breathe, let's them come to fruitition in their own time, while finding drama in its funny bits and comedy (this side of moronic) even in the tragic parts. And add to that a subtle directorial effort and a capable ensemble cast, and you've got yourself a very enjoyable movie.
