Synopsis

When Manny Papadopoulos, a young aspiring writer, meets Eve Stephanopoulos, the girl of his dreams and a virgin to boot, he adamantly believes that getting into a serious relationship will derail him from his dream. Teddy, Manny's best friend, who will do anything to get back together with his ex-girlfriend, Jenny, eases Manny's concerns by pointing out the many pros of the 90's Virgin and dismisses any commitment fears Manny has by posing the question: How serious can things get with a virgin?
