Split Pea Pod
95 Minutes - 2W, 3M
Dan is so unsure about his relationship with his girlfriend, Gert, that he splits in half-- the half that loves her unconditionally and the half that's terminally afraid of commitment. The two halves (played by two different actors) must reconcile their indecision and work together to win back Gert before she is lost forever. The plight of the two Dans is complicated by his roommate, Steve-- who is secretly in love with both Gert and Dan-- and by Steve's therapist, Dr. Benning, who seems to be doing more harm than good.
