Film Synopsis

After hopeless romantic Tom is dumped by his free-spirited “girlfriend” Summer, he is left to sift through the broken pieces of their relationship to figure out where it went wrong.

In this episode, the guys talk about themes such as true love, the game of dating, destiny, loving the idea of people, the problem with romantic comedies, and the necessity of bad relationships. Mark has some problems with rom-coms, and Dan has some problems with Summer. Tune in to see why. 

Looking Ahead
