With very little modification, the relationship woes of the six chirpy young New Yorkers in this (happythankyoumoreplease) self-absorbed indie could be reworked into episodes of TV’s How I Met Your Mother. The casting is in place: HIMYM star Josh Radnor — who also wrote and directed — plays a puppyish aspiring novelist with a knack for one-night stands (Kate Mara lasts a few nights longer). Good thing the guy’s got nice friends: One, a pretty, bald woman (Malin Akerman), phones him before a job interview to remind him to tuck in his shirt. C+
