Rating: 3.5/5

Two more months. It’s as long as the relationship between Jennifer Paige and her boyfriend has before the drama explodes, ripping apart decades-long friendships and causing divisions within the circle.

Paige is checked out and would rather be with someone else. Her boyfriend’s nice but they’ve only been dating for two months and he’s already talking about their possible kids. However, she gets along really well with his best friend and he seems interested, despite having a girlfriend.

His best friend senses his discomfort in the car. When they get to the car wash, she leaves him to go inside and it nearly causes a fight to break out. At dinner, though, he hangs onto her, hoping to keep her attention. The tension is apparent at the table as she and his best friend openly flirt at the table. A triangle is forming and the things are getting complicated. It’s her boyfriend who is going to up the drama, claiming she led him on when she simply lost interest.
