If he doesn’t watch out, that loathsome Wall Street stock trader, Tommy (Scott Porter), is going to lose his sensitive girlfriend, Beth (Alexis Bledel), to Daniel, Tommy’s shy, not-nearly-so-loathsome fellow trader (Bryan Greenberg), who has joined Beth’s book club and loves Jane Austen. Julio DePietro’s deceptively deep screenplay, which he directs with subtlety despite the potentially gag-producing premise, is actually a nifty, entertaining piece of urban moralizing – no one likes a selfish manipulator for long, not even in New York. Like Sex and the City with teeth (90 min.).
