Despite having a love/hate relationship with her scoundrel of a father Gordon Townsend, the one thing Amy Townsend has grown up believing from him is that monogamy isn’t realistic, he and Amy’s mom who broke up due to infidelity when Amy was young. As such, she gets drunk and stoned frequently in her pursuit of indiscriminate sex, with an unstated rule that there is no sleeping over once the sex is over. Her current “boyfriend”, Steven, believes they are exclusive, not knowing that she sleeps with other men. Working at sensationalistic magazine S’nuff under head sensationalist Dianna, Amy is in line for a promotion, she certain to get it if her next story meets Dianna’s scrutiny. That story is a profile of sports doctor to the stars, Dr. Aaron Conners, it despite Amy knowing nothing about sports. To Amy’s amazement, Aaron wants to date her following their first sexual encounter, his sexual history in terms of quantity which is in extreme contrast to her own. Also to her amazement, she kind of wants to date him, the entire ritual of being the one person in another person’s life a foreign concept to her. The road to a happy ending for the two is not guaranteed as their very different sexual histories and very different perspectives on sexual life may make them incompatible despite truly liking each other as people. Ensuring that his man Aaron is happy and doesn’t get hurt in the process is someone who seems to take Aaron’s personal life even more to heart than he does: LeBron James.—Huggo
Norman Lloyd, who plays a supporting role in this movie, was 100 years old during filming. Lloyd (who was born in November 1914) had his first role in a Broadway show in 1927 and his first movie role in 1939; his career has included roles for Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Charles Chaplin, and Martin Scorsese. After being blacklisted during the Red Scare of the 1950s, Alfred Hitchcock again employed him–this time as a producer, on the TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955), and then he enjoyed an acting resurgence during the 1980s after being cast as Dr. Daniel Auschlander on St. Elsewhere (1982). Lloyd claimed that most of his lines were improvised, and that it was the first time in his career that he improvised during a performance.
