Is there a trend of movies like these nowadays - New Yorkers 30 and above facing emotional crisis and do nothing but sit around to talk and whine? (Think The Last Kiss and Friends With Money.)

Julianne Moore, David Duchovny, Billy Crudup, Maggie Gyllenhaal join in the pack who sit around dissatisfied with their love life. The X-files man play the sex addict (Is twice a day THAT much) vs his actress wife has doesn’t want more, and the single and happy vs his girlfriend (Mr Brokeback Mountain's sister) who watches her biological clock tick for the last 7 years.

Conflicts tore them apart. They each find solace in a younger actor, mother for sex, a hot ex girlfriend and a boring French man. The 4 other halves do nothing to add drama to the movie. A pity for Hitch’s Eva Mendes who is the temptress who just want to ‘live life to the fullest’.

As they search for love in the midst of careers, family, infidelity and the ever-daunting search for Manhattan street parking, they find themselves and also the most important thing in their life.

This movie may strike a chord with city dwellers with similar problems. Otherwise, it is another shallow piece who can do with better scriptwriting and pacing. A waste of the four very good cast.
