There are plenty of laughs in the outrageous predicaments and the actors are obviously having a ball.

It's all harmlessly naughty at the outset, but when it comes to juggling all those characters and their intersecting scenarios, Voelker lacks the dexterity of, say, Robert Altman.

None of the characters seems particularly believable, except Lake's; she brings some feeling to a thin role. And the campy, "outrageous" comedy is pretty thin, too.

A little bit of fluff. A cliched look at relationships and self discovery played out during a long lunch hour at a secluded park overlooking Los Angeles. A… More
