Plan B

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Jon Cryer, Lance Guest, Lisa Darr, Mark Matheisen, Sara Mornell; MPAA Rating: Unrated

At the early midlife crossroads are five friends living small in Los Angeles, city of dreams: an unpublished novelist, an infertile couple, an aspiring actor, and a single career woman. Friendship pulls them through, but it’s the grace of compromise that gives briefly released comedy Plan B its poignant edge. The opening party scene may be as awkward as a blind date, but then some engaging performances take shape — Cryer’s wannabe serial-killer novelist is low-key comedy at its best. B
