Actor Adam Goldberg's directorial debut is a predictably rough piece of work, with brooding black and white cinematography, odd rear-projection tricks, and a considerably stilted narration (and of course he's pining for a girl...), but he redeems muich of his overenthusiasm with a cool jazz soundtrack and a swingin' undertone that puts you in a timeless era that successfully evokes the 1950s. Co-starring virtually everyone from Boiler Room, Scotch and Milk makes good with raw talent and a certain flair, but don't go looking for a whole lot more.
