Lookin' in the Mirror
Lookin' in the Mirror is the most unromantic romantic comedy ever. Simply a comedy, but with all the trappings of a romantic comedy: likable protagonists surrounded by a cast of friends discussing the perils of dating and life as young professionals, as well as unresolved issues with an ex, to boot. In spite of all the focus on their love lives, however, nobody falls in love. But you will, with the parallel stories of Gerald & Victoria as they work their way through the jungle of modern life. Be careful. You might find yourself talking back to the page! Victoria is a commitment-phobic journalist living in DC who believes that the more hot guys she can have on her arm, the better. But her girl posse - a married friend who she has known since high school, two city transplants who came into the group by happenstance, and her roommate - is pressuring her to settle down, when they start to wonder if Victoria is actually running away from something. A businessman in Houston, TX, Gerald is a 30-something with strong ties to his city. He was born and raised there with his crew: a man-whore named Will, his best friend Mia and a Mexican-American named Carlos. Every weekend, they get together like they always have. One of his childhood friends has recently convinced him to try online dating, which flops. So when he is not on a Saturday Night Live-style disaster date or fending off the advances of his ex, he is concealing a bubbling existential crisis.
