"This low-budget but well-directed Bill Romans-penned and -starring comedy does better with its nerdy guy banter and easy-going plot than its visions of at what it's like for writers in academia. Judging from the experience of William (Romans), it involves hanging out with friends, hooking up with women way too hot for you, and being too afraid to take the leap to really try writing.
But the strongest parts of the film don't involve writing. The story sees William pursue a blonde-haired beauty while he shtups a hot library clerk and a sex-only brunette vixen who rings him for booty calls. His two best friends, also in grad school for creative writing--played charismatically by Kevin Butler and David S. Jung--run into their own girl troubles. The film works most when it stays away from any wise pretensions to literary wisdom, with the sole exception of Frank Langella. His screen presence cannot be denied, even in this oddly quiet-voiced role as William's professor who does a less venomous but equally insulting take on John Houseman's epic legal schoolmaster of The Paper Chase.
Romans, director Tobin, and the co-stars have promise.
