  • Details
In the wake of a humiliating ordeal that saw him dumped by his long-term girlfriend on live television, Lewis Bond (Emmy winner Wayne Brady) sets out to find a new soul mate by compiling a wish list of "must-have" attributes. She has to be smart, she has to be able to sing -- and she even has to like Thai food. But even the most promising prospect (Sydney Tamiia Poitier, daughter of Oscar winner Sidney Poitier) turns out to be less than perfect.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sweet romance has a fair amount of sex for a made-for-TV movie airing on ABC Family. There's kissing, groping, and other types of foreplay, as well as a brief scene that shows a couple having sex in bed (no nudity). Female characters often dress in skimpy outfits and flirt like crazy -- a supporting male character revels in it, but his upstanding friend (the main character) steadily turns them down in favor of a meaningful relationship. Language like "damn" and "bitch" is common, and there's some social drinking.

Sexual Content

A brief scene shows a couple having sex in bed, but the covers obscure any nudity aside from a man's bare upper body. A few make-out sessions and one post-coital bedroom scene (again, sans nudity). Some female characters flirt blatantly and wear skimpy clothing.


One scene includes a punch and a slap, neither of which draws blood.


"Ass," "bitch," and "damn" are common. Rare use of "s--t" is bleeped.

Social Behavior

The main character is a moralistic single man (he often turns down women who throw themselves at him) looking for a meaningful romantic relationship. His close friend is a womanizer who hires a woman to date his buddy. Divorce and extramarital affairs are central to the plot.
