There are few subjects that are more puzzling than love. What is it? How do you know when you find it? Will it last? Is there really “true love” and is there “the one” person out there who is your perfect match, someone who is your romantic destiny?
Tom is an optimist who has been waiting his whole life for his soul mate, while Summer has had a number of different relationships — wittily explained on screen — and has moved to Los Angeles because she was bored with her life. Does she have friends? We never really learn much about her and what makes her tick, but then again, this is Tom’s story and when he’s not with Summer, he’s hanging out with his two buddies McKenzie (Geoffrey Arend) and Paul (Matthew Gray Gubler), who are the guy who has lots of relationship advice but hasn’t been in a relationship forever and the guy who is still with his elementary school sweetheart, respectively. They’re both funny, warm and caring friends to Tom and are the kind of guys every man would like to have as buddies.
