IMDb Plot Synopsis: In Los Angeles, Nikki is homeless, car-less and closing in on 30, but he's amoral, good-looking, and adept in the sack, moving from one wealthy woman of 35 or 40 to another, a kept boy-toy. His newest gig, with Samantha, an attorney whose house overlooks L.A., is sweet, although it's unclear how long she'll put up with him. Then Nikki meets Heather, a waitress. Is the player being played, or might this be love? What will Nikki discover?
My Quick Review: I haven’t much to say about this film other than Ashton Kutcher puts in a decent performance and it was entertaining enough and yet... the film lacked any kind of substance.
It was a shame really as it had potential to go a lot darker and explore Nikki’s character more but it seemed rather shallow and with no likeable characters I switched off pretty quickly.
It’s essentially a story about dreaming with some nice little moral message to wrap it up but nothing more than that. All rather blah really.
