Claiming he's not committed to their relationship, fed-up wife Jill (Kelly Rowan) abruptly tosses out her surprised spouse Dan (Emilio Estevez), who finds himself wandering the streets of L.A. While nursing his separation pangs, this emotionally reserved man becomes vulnerable to the outside world. After fending off a pass by a gay cop, Dan phones Jeff (Steven Weber), the freewheeling pal he'd dumped upon taking his marital vows. A Svengali of the bar scene, Jeff encourages Dan to shuck off conformity by tooling around in a stolen car, enjoying recreational drugs, and picking up party girls. While kicking up his heels, Dan experiences these disasters: his pick-up breaks her arm while stripping; he gets arrested during a drug raid at a club; the gay cop, whom Dan spurned, forces him into psychiatric counseling at the precinct. After bails him out, it's time for Dan to make a decision: go with the hedonistic flow or try to salvage his faltering marriage. Rubbing Dan's nose in the perils awaiting a divorced male, this trendy comic fable makes bachelorhood seem like a level of Dante's Inferno. Decked out with acerbic narration and explanatory flashbacks, it means to search the soul of a yuppie consumed with marital angst. As embodied by Estevez, however, it's hard to empathize with Dan's self-absorbed neediness. On the plus side, this cross between AFTER HOURS and a marital counseling bull session offers a sightseeing tour through the swinging nightlife of contemporary L.A. Another plus is Weber's silky rendition of a coked-up Don Juan.
