Little CitySan Francisco. Adam’s (Josh Charles) girlfriend Kate (Joanna Going) left him for Anne (JoBeth Williams), and he’s still in love with her. Jon Bon Jovi plays Adam’s best friend Kevin, who has an affair with Adam’s next girlfriend. At the same time, Kevin is going after Rebecca (Penelope Ann Miller), who is new in town. Rebecca turns Kevin down, but has sex with Anne. Kate comes home early from coming out to her parents and finds Anne and Rebecca in bed, which is convenient, since Anne has been trying to find a way to break up with Kate.

Confused yet? It turns out that Anne’s thing is ‘corrupting straight girls,’ and Kate is crushed. Rebecca, who works with Kevin, is more into men and gets together with Adam. Meanwhile, Kate wants to try getting back with Adam, while Rebecca is upstairs in his bed. By the next night, Adam and Kate are back together. Adam dumps Rebecca, and he then gets to hear about how Rebecca caused Kate and Anne’s breakup.

Soon Kate decides she really is a lesbian and can’t be with Adam even though she cares about him. She just needs to be herself. Still confused? 🙂

I won’t go through all the rest of the relationship back and forths. It’s not a bad film. It’s just so complicated and so unlikely that it misses the mark for a romantic comedy. As a plus, at least Kate doesn’t decide to go back to men! (AB)
