1) Open with a few scenes in which coworkers (a guy and girl who have significant others) flirt at work. *Let's make this heavy-handed so the audience 'gets it'.
2) Now show each of them in a scene with their significant others where they don't really "click" * pour on the unhappiness so our audience understands what we're going for here.
3) Create a situation in which our heroes can hook up. How do you do this? Ohh...."Hey, you go on a picnic with MY boyfriend while I drink and play card games with YOUR girlfriend -- what could possible happen?"
4) Won't reveal spoilers because movie was turned off.

I enjoyed this movie and thought the acting was excellent.

I thought this was a stupid movie - total waste of my time and reminded me why I don't watch Indie movies. I was drawn in by the title cast members. Don't bother watching.

A very real "slice of life" - not necessarily real in that it is a slice of your own life - but the characters are so natural with eachother, the personalities so individual, it feels like people you know - well. Dialogue and body language are very natural. Is that quality acting or skillful improv? or are they the same thing?
View this film with friends and lovers - what a great conversation over beers you'll have!

Good indie.
Two friendly couples, consisting of opposites tackle the hard questions with regards to their relationships and lives with an unexpected conclusion.
Slow start, but midway it gets you engaged and curious to know the outcome of both couples.
