For A Good Time, Call...

For A Good Time, Call…is both a very funny and very sweet film about two quite different females, who are able to bond despite a horrendous initial meeting during their high school days.
Lauren Powell (Lauren Anne Miller) has just been jilted by her live-in boyfriend and has lost her prospective dream job as an editor through nepotism.  In dire need of a place to live, her friend Jesse (Justin Long) brings her to the spacious Gramercy Park rental apartment Katie Steele (Ari Graynor) has taken over after her grandmother's death.                                         
Financial need forces the two women to tolerate each other, but, when Lauren learns her roommate is operating a phone sex business on the premises, her entrepreneurial sense comes into play and the two join forces to make the business thrive.
What, in some hands, might have turned into sleazy fare, becomes surprisingly charming as Katie’s psyche is unraveled and the women bond.
Sharp writing, smooth direction and fine production values make For A Good Time, Call...an enjoyable date movie.  I’m giving it a 4 out of 5.
