Description by OLDIES.com:
Sensitive but unsuccessful New York magazine columnist Michael (James Lorinz – King of New York, Frankenhooker) looks on with hopeless envy as his self-confident, shallow brother Frankie catches all the women, makes all the money and never feels a pang of remorse at his amoral behavior.Enter Lila (Barbara Sicuranza – Anamorph), a tough, sexy bartender. Initially Frankie's got her, and Michael gets fixed up with her biker chick roommate (Joan Jett, of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts). Then, through a twist of fate, Michael finds himself vying with Frankie for Lila's affections, and the results are both riotously funny and touching. Filmmakers Roy Frumkes and Rocco Simonelli (writers of the cult hit The Substitute) have created a romantic comedy for people who hate romantic comedies!
Two brothers fall for the same woman in this romantic comedy from Rocco Simonelli (THE SUBSTITUTE) and Roy Frumkes (STREET TRASH). Michael (James Lorinz) is a magazine columnist living in New York City. A sensitive guy with a pleasant demeanor, he's the total opposite of his amoral, womanizing brother Frankie (Robert Mobley). When Frankie hooks up with beautiful bartender Lila (Barbara Sicuranza, Anamorph), Michael agrees to go on a date with her kinky biker roommate (Joan Jett). Sibling rivalry starts to heat up, however, when Lila realizes she has more in common with nice guy Michael than she does with bad boy Frankie.
