A collection of everyday New Yorkers struggle to carry on with their increasingly stressful lives a year after the city was forever changed by the 9/11 terrorist attacks in Brooklyn-native Danny Leiner's ensemble-cast slice of life. Dr. Trabulous (Tony Shalhoub) is a gifted psychologist with a special knack for truly understanding his patients. When an ordinary businessman (Jim Gaffigan) who has witnessed a terrible office tragedy seeks to gain the insight of the seasoned professional, Dr. Trabulous helps to release a hidden rage that has slowly been eating away at the man's troubled soul. Meanwhile, in the culinary world, Great New Wonderful pastry shop proprietor Emme Keeler (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is about to discover that unseating the woman known as the Queen of Cake (Edie Falco) doesn't come without some heavy consequences. Elsewhere in the city, troubled couple Allison (Judy Greer) and David Burbage (Tom McCarthy) fight to save their marriage and break through to their curiously overconfident ten-year-old boy. Avi (Naseeruddin Shah) and Satish (Sharat Saxena) are immigrants and best friends who work together as security guards and wander the city making observations about contemporary America until their opposing perspectives are challenged by an unexpected development in their lives that neither saw coming. And despite the comfort she takes in her daily routine, Julie Berman (Olympia Dukakis) discovers that her passion for life has long since died, until a visit with a childhood friend helps her to realize just what she's been missing all these lonely years. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

This movie definately had the acting talent but the script was not well written..This movie plot is so DISJOINTED as well..It moves along at an AGONIZINGLY slow pace, that it disgusts you....pleeze find SOMETHING else to put in your que...you wont regret it!...
The film is disjointed stories of everyday people. I love the awkward moments of interaction between characters that make the movie as much a comedy as it is a drama. There are scenes between the psychiatrist and the businessman that are hilarious. Every story will suck you in. It does take a bit of patience at first. At times Danny Leiner will show but a minute thirty of one of the stories and switch to the other. He's very smart about the shots, but it slows the movie down. I know that the year after 9/11 setting was supposed to be significant, but I enjoyed it because of the characters. I found the message of the movie to be that life goes on.
