  • Love is a many-splintered thing.

    Valentine's Day, the happiest of the year...if you own a greeting card company.

    Miles breaks up with his girlfriend Jackie. Meanwhile, Murphy finds a date for Frank--but he'll only agree if Murphy will see his friend and they all double-date. Jim, a married man, becomes the object of secretary Leslie's affections.

    The group date is immensely awkward. Murphy and her date Richie have nothing in common. Same goes for Frank and Meg. Jim's brief attempt to see if the grass is greener on the other side doesn't exactly turn out well either.

    With friends like these, who needs chocolates?

    A bittersweet and very funny story. You'll have some laughs whether you get a kick out of Valentine's Day or not.
