Movie synopsis
Irish screenwriter, playwright, and director Gerard Stembridge's glib romantic comedy is a tale of familial sexual intrigue told from the multiple perspectives of three sisters and their brother. In stark contrast to rural cinematic visions of Ireland like WAKING NED DEVINE, Stembridge's story is set in a glittering, hiply urbane Dublin. Lucy Owens, (Kate Hudson) a waitress-c**-singer in a sleek caf�, has a romantic past littered with boyfriends, but not one great passion. Things change for the pretty singer when she meets the sexy, shy Adam (Stuart Townsend), whose sweetness charms both Lucy and her family. Behind the wide-eyed fa�ade, however, Adam is a roguish serial seducer, who begins to work his magic on Lucy's repressed, bookish sister Laura (Frances O'Connor). With tragic flair, the sensual Adam recites poetry angling to get into the Victorian mind, heart and bed of Laura. Matters are further complicated when the oblivious Lucy proposes to the caddish chameleon, and her older, wiser sister, Alice (Charlotte Bradley) and brother, David, (Alan Maher) begin to suspect Adam's apparent perfection. Stembridge's farcical sexual romp features a young, talented cast and is a firmly tongue-in-cheek examination of sexual morality and family relationships.

Amazing movie

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I loved this movie the first time I saw it and wanted to own it, so I figured this was the best way to get it. The movie has romance, wit, and comedy perfect for a good night in.

Confusing at first, but worth it!

The first time I watched this movie, I was somewhat confused. About halfway through the movie, I realized what it was really about. Once it was all over, I had to watch it again to go back and get the parts I missed. It was worth it, though! It shows the story from different character's points of views, which makes an overlap effect. Overall a really good movie.
