"Taylor Polvar believes love happens like it does in the movies. Although with his girlfriend leaving him for a pseudo-Australian soap star and his well-meaning best friend setting him up on every disastrous date the world of personal ads has to offer, it's playing more like a Fellini film than anything else. Still Taylor perseveres, holding fast to the notion that love does exist. It's really all he can do. After all, why would John Hughes lie? When Taylor meets Swain Holly, an incandescent, headstrong girl who believes in Bigfoot more than she does love, their first meeting passes about as smoothly as a kidney stone. But fate has a funny way of taking its time, and they form a powerful and unlikely friendship that ultimately becomes threatened by the same thing that's drawing them together. Chris Boyd (FIFTY PILLS, WHAT WE DO IS SECRET) and Mircea Monroe (FINDING BLISS, THE ULTIMATE GIFT, SCRUBS, FoxTV's DRIVE) star in SCREW CUPID, a razor sharp, hilarious, and sometimes all too real look at the insanity that is being single, the fear and vulnerability of letting someone actually know you, and the different lengths people take to fool themselves into fooling themselves that everything's okay."
