"A romantic comedy with a modern twist, Little City is about a group of people who struggle with life, love, and relationships in the deceptively small social circles of San Francisco. The production boats a strong ensemble cast starring Josh Charles, Jon Bon Jovi, Anabella Sciorra, Penelope Ann Miller, Joanna Going, and JoBeth Williams. Written and directed by Robert Benabib, Little City is produced by Bandeira Entertainment's Beau Flynn, Stefan Simchowitz, Ron Wechsler, and Jeff Davidson and co-produced by Mary Vernieu.In the "little city" by the bay, the lives of Adam, Kevin, Nina, Rebecca and Kate become interwined in a complicated web of sex, jealousy, obsession and finally, true love. Adam(Josh Charles), an artist moonlighting as a cab driver, is unable to maintain steady relationships with women. He blames this on his fixation with his ex-girlfriend, Kate(Joanna Going) who left him for a lesbian lover, Ann(JoBeth Williams). Carrying this torch for Kate has led Adam to neglect his current girlfriend, Nina(Annabella Sciorra) who turns to his philandering best friend, Kevin(Jon Bon Jovi). The illicit affair starts off as purely physical attraction, but ends up being much more once Kevin realizes his true feelings for Nina.Another love triangle forms as Adam tries to juggle his developing with Rebecca(Penelope Ann Miller) and his desire to win Kate back. Rebecca is the new girl in town who discovers, in more ways than one, just how small the single community is in San Francisco. It is Rebecca's ability to take chances with her heart that eventually wins Adam over in this charming picturesque film."

"Definitely a relationship movie!! This movie is about a group of single adults who each have their own relationship issues and sexual preferences. This movie is about how they deal with these, work through them and accept them via mistakes, counseling/therapy/confession etc. The setting is the small community of San Francisco where it seems everyone knows everyone and therefore secrets and rumors get around quickly.This is the first movie I have seen Jon Bon Jovi in and I was impressed. He actually can act! I thought the movie started out slow, but as it progressed and all the characters were introduced it started to get very interesting and I was curious to watch it all unfold and I wondered who was going to end up with who at the end of the movie!As always Annabella Scioria is great,pretty and believable."Little City" is worth watching, just don't expect it to be thrilling, greatly suspenseful or a tear jerker. I doubt it will stir up too much emotion, but all in all it is a good movie."

"I thought this movie was really good! Being that the movie wasn't that popular, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Josh Charles is such a hottie in this movie - there's just something about him that makes me swoon. Jon Bon Jovi has done better work than this - was a little disappointed in his performance. The movie is very touching and realistic re: relationships in the 90's. I would say it is definitely a "girl" movie though. The movie could also do without the therapy sessions of Kevin and Kate - wasn't crazy about that part. I liked the way all the relationships in this movie were intertwined - it kept the movie interesting. Once again, Josh Charles' portrayal of Adam was wonderful to me. The character is such a sweetheart, so kind and caring! How many men do you know like that? Anyways, great movie - definitely worth seeing for those of you who like romantic comedies!"
Better than "Chasing Amy"

"If you liked "Chasing Amy" but were not totally satisfied with it in some way or another, you might find "Little City" better in many ways. I did. I tend to easily fall for comedies with witty, sarcastic lines, and plots that don't strain themselves in a silly way to happy endings. So this movie really got me. The script, while not offering quite unpredictable twists and turns, was beautifully written and brought to life by a strong cast: Annabelle Sciorra, Penelope Ann Miller, Joanna Going, JoBeth Williams, Josh Charles and Jon Bon Jovi (speaking of this guy, you got to see him in "Moonlight and Valentino" too -- he's awesome). One thing that surprised me was that IMDB didn't list any "memorable quote" from this film, as there's quite a lot that'd make you burst out laughing every 5 minutes or so. Apart from the mysterious acronym "O.G.T." (as later explained by Adam), I particularly enjoyed this dialogue: (Kate) "Every relationship gets a bit domestic after a certain point, we could have worked on it". (Anne) "We shouldn't have to work on it. It isn't a crossword puzzle. It's passion. And quite frankly, we ran out of it"... Okay, I better not give away more. Your turn to find it all out."
Little City is a Big Film!

"A wonderful ensemble cast give this movie someone for everyone to enjoy watching. The beautiful Joanna Going, Penelope Ann Miller,Annabella Sciorra, and JoBeth Williams all are superb. With some adult themes and content this movie is probably not suitable for young children, but, there is nothing that can be considered dirty in the movie. The male stars are Josh Charles and Jon Bob Jovi of Rock & Roll fame. Sort of a modern "St. Elmos Fire" type of movie."
