Synopsis:

Alan has this thing about Humphrey Bogart. His wife left him and his friends have been trying to fix him up with beautiful dates, but he is so gauche they always end abysmally. His day-dreams of Bogart and the beautiful people are always rudely shattered by real life. And when he falls for his best friend’s wife things really seem black. But the homely hero is saved and is left to dream of being greater things.
