John (played by writer/director/producer Jesse Rosen) has just broken up with his girlfriend and moves to Los Angeles, hanging out with his college buddies, going out to drink and get laid, and working a day job as a glorified gofer in an ad agency, hoping to pursue his interest in photography. His boss has "7-figure sexual harrassment suit" written all over him, but John is initially too confused about himself to push away. Some of the funny lines are laughs and others are groaners — subtle and not-so-subtle inuendos — but throughout, the viewer gets a sense of a young man wrestling with defining himself and shifting from a collegiate to an adult persona. Oh, and the eye candy's pretty sweet, too.... Highly recommended
