Writer-director Todd Solondz's latest collection of odd-but-lovable characters stars Jordan Gelber as Abe, a spoiled 35-year-old who still lives with his parents, collects action figures, takes money from his mom (Mia Farrow), has a do-nothing job with his dad's (Christopher Walken) little real estate company, wears a rhinestone name necklace and drives a bright yellow Hummer. But the perpetually angry Abe's life suddenly perks up when he attends a wedding and meets the equally miserable (but beautiful) Miranda (Selma Blair). Abe proposes on their first date, but the events that follow suggest Abe may have a very weak grasp of reality; plus, there's the sneaking suspicion that Miranda may really be after Abe's more successful and better-looking brother (Justin Bartha).
