Café Society offers a glimpse in to the world of Hollywood in the 1930's. With its narrative following Bronx-born, Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Einsenberg) on his romantic journey following his dreams, in both Hollywood and New York.
At the beginning of the film Bobby works for his uncle in Hollywood where he falls in love with his charming assistant Vonnie, on finding out she has a boyfriend he settles for friendship. However when she breaks up with him Bobby wastes little time and proposes to her. All seems to be going well until an unexpected turn of events happen and Bobby ends up fleeing to New York heartbroken.
On returning to New York he works for his gangster brother Ben who is now the owner of a nightclub "Les Tropiques" which is where he is first introduced to Veronica. The couple marry and seem to be living happily until one night when Vonnie arrives at the club and events change once again. This film is charming in its diverse representations of the 30's from down town New York to the scandals of Manhattan's elite.

What starts out as a smart, sassy comedy about infertility gets bogged down in its own potty humour, ultimately becoming a dull caper romp that's impossible to care about. This is a real shame since the cast is clearly up for something more sophisticated and knowing, and the filmmakers seem to have some amusing ideas up their sleeves.
The film opens as Audrey and Tommy (Munn and Schneider) are celebrating their third anniversary and decide to start a family. When Audrey doesn't get pregnant, tests show that Tommy's low sperm count is to blame, due presumably to too many groin injuries while goofing around with his chucklehead pals (Heffernan and Faxon). But since he had donated to a sperm bank years earlier, he decides to make a withdrawal, only to discover that the last batch has already been sold. So he and his friends hire a crazy-eyed Indian criminal (Chandrasekhar) to orchestrate a heist.
Munn and Schneider are gifted actors who create an engaging sense of chemistry in the feisty first act, grounding the comedy in real marital issues that are riotously funny because of the unexpected frankness of their discussions about sex. But as this starts to drift into a series of one-note gags about semen and genitals, our patience wavers. And then the caper kicks in, and it's so contrived and stupid that we lose all interest in the film and the characters. We may still care about Audrey and Tommy, but the situation they get into is just as idiotic as the people around them.

There comes a time in a relationship when baby talk must be had. When Audrey brings the subject up with husband Tommy, he doesn't think sowing the seeds of nature would be a problem - especially since he sold a sample of his sperm to the local sperm bank some years ago. However, after being unsuccessful at getting his wife pregnant several times, they go to a doctor who informs him of his extremely low sperm count. Feeling slightly emasculated, he suggests that there could be a problem, perhaps, with Audrey's body, but the doctor dismisses the idea as her ovaries are in perfect shape. Remembering when he sold his sperm sample, he revisits the sperm bank and requests it back in a last bid to have a baby. When the man at the clinic tells him it has already been sold, Tommy offers twice the amount of money they did in order to win it back. He is refused but his friends persuade him that he has the right to steal it back and so they set out on a scheme to retrieve his last chance at fatherhood.

- The title. How to Lose Your Lover, retitled (barely) from the original 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, is far too reminiscent of 10 Thngs I Hate About You and the appallingly bad How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. This film doesn't actually resemble either of those movies, but its too familiar a title to make people run to the cineplex.

Recalling Days of Heaven and Sling Blade, George Washington takes us on a tour of the Deep South, centering on a preteen African-American named George (Richardson, not Washington -- played by Donald Holden), a boy whose skull bones have never fully developed. With his soft head, he wears a helmet wherever he goes and isn't allowed to go swimming, as the water would in some way soak into his brain, causing extreme pain.
