This is a romantic comedy movie. A man has had a bad year, and he just wants to sleep through New Year's Eve. His friend has other ideas. Wilson moved from Los Angeles to New York City. It was not his best move, and he regrets the entire year he has been there. His plan for the last night of the year is to lock his apartment door and go to bed early.
His best friend, Jacob, is more of an optimist. This friend says all he needs is to find a date and the evening will be great. Placing a personal ad certainly gets results.
