Storyline

NYC dating comedy that follows one man's hallucination-fueled post-breakup quest to find new love... and himself. When Charlie Carroll quits his job and his girlfriend on the same day, it seems as though he's finally found freedom. But after a quick dip in the dark waters of the NYC dating pool, Charlie begins to wonder if he's made a mistake. He's not equipped for single life. In fact, Charlie might not be equipped for life in general. With no job and no love, Charlie is forced to go on a journey of self-discovery so intense that he begins to suffer from surreal hallucinations, flashbacks, and sex fantasies. Will he find "the one?" Or did that ship already sail, taking with it his only hopes for relationship sanity? Written by Anonymous

Best Whining by a Single Guy.....Ever!
10 January 2017 | by yossarian100See all my reviews

Great screenplay, great dialog, and a most wonderful collection of sketches tied together by a general theme of whining about not being in a relationship with Miss Perfect.

Aaron Tveit gives a tremendously satisfying performance, as does the entire supporting cast, who play off one another like a seasoned theater group.

I chuckled non-stop, and that says.....It doesn't get any better than this. However, if don't get urban wit, some of this might go over your head. Or, if you expect a romantic comedy to follow a formula, you might be disappointed, too.

Still, I give this a hearty recommendation. "Better Off Single" is witty, probing, and spot-on honest. Enjoy!
