An aspiring dancer named Ben shows up in Los Angeles and moves in with his two best friends Jason and Corey, the three of them looking to find love in the city of dreams while also seeking fulfillment in their careers. Ben begins throwing it around with men he meets online and never understands why they won’t call him back, at the same time rehearsing a performance piece with a fellow dancer who does not want them to have a relationship (but after enough man-on-man pas de deuxs, do you think that might change?) Jason delivers humorless stand-up comedy routines while pursuing an industry bigwig in the hopes of making it in show business, and Corey airs his fear of sex by donning garish outfits and working as assistant to a former star (played with embarrassing awkwardness by Sally Kirkland). There is no sense of background to either the characters or their relationship, there is little connection between scenes and most of the dialogue makes no sense. In short, it’s garbage, and has far too little eye candy exploitation to make up for it.
