Director Greg Lombardo looks at the relationship game from a male standpoint in this comedy about dating, sex, marriage, and infidelity. KNOTS is the story of three guys whose overlapping love lives entangle them in a complicated web of love, passion, and deceit. Shortly after moving to a new home in Manhattan, Dave (Scott Cohen) meets a sexy lawyer (Paulina Porizkova), who makes him question his devotion to his wife (Annabeth Gish). Meanwhile, smooth-talking playboy Cal (John Stamos) claims that longtime girlfriend Emily (Tara Reid) is "the one," yet doesn't hesitate to move in on his pal Jake's (Michael Leydon Campbell) woman. These events are just the first few in a long line of tumultuous happenings that affect the lives the three men and their partners. Darker in mood than most films on similar subject matters, KNOTS offers a fresh perspective on the politics of contemporary courtship.
