Jim (Brendan Cowell) just can’t make a commitment to his girlfriend of three years, Alice (Yvonne Strahovski).  In frustration she considers taking a job in England and leaving him for good. After a hard night of single partying with his mate Blake (Peter Helliar), drunk Jim tries to steal Charlie’s (Peter Dinklage) car.  They become friends and end up working to help each other with their problems of the heart.

The movie starts by moving  into a well known formula–boy loses girl, boy finds out how important girl is to boy and wins her back. But the entry of Charlie into the story moves it into new ground.  As the story progresses it explores several different type of love and relationships.  While I ended up enjoying the movie, it just missed being a good film.

It turns out Jim is flawed, like this film–watch it—–06/10
