Jack And Jill vs. The World

Synopsis: In Manhattan, the successful executive Jack is a methodical and controlled man with simple habits that works in an advertisement agency with his coworker George.

He sympathizes with her situation and gives her name to a Klubendorf commercial in the campaign promoted by his agency. When he takes Jill home, he finds that she lives in a very low-budget hotel and out of the blue, he invites her to stay in the guest room of his fancy apartment for a while. Jill changes the behavior of Jack that becomes happier, and proposes Jack to write together a manifesto where the first rule is "be honest".

I was outta there.

Intrigued by her.

I kinda miss Tupac already.

I left him with my parents.

You want to see a picture?


Man, he's looking good.

Isn't he cute? Mwah!

Is this the place?

Home sweet home.

You know, these hostels

are riddled with bedbugs,

crabs, stuff like that.

Hey, listen, you're not...



Anyway, thanks for the ride.

Hey, little mama!

There it was.


Things were about to get complicated.

Well... this is it.

Uh, bathroom, kitchen,

living area, TV.

That's, uh, that's my

bedroom over there,

and the extra bedroom

is right there.

There's a... bit of a view there.

Oh! It's gorgeous.

You like?


Just until you find

something on your own.


Thank you.

Thank you.

Just make yourself comfortable.

Please. Of course they've talked about it.

Of course you've talked about it.

That is not the question.

The question is how many, hmm?

Am I right?

Sally, let me guess.

You want a small family,

and, uh, George,

George wants you

to be a baby machine.

# There's no such thing as the future #

# It's all doubts and lovely dreams #

# Come and listen to these screams #

# There's no such thing as heroes #

# Just a bunch of ones and zeros #

I used to think that having kids

was, like, a total copout.

I mean, everyone jumping on

the conveyor belt to do it

'cause they have nothing better to do.

I'm a career woman.

Gimme a break.

But now I know

there's more to it than that.

It's biological.

You want a coffee?

No thanks. I don't go there.

Why? What's wrong with it?

I try and buy fair trade coffee.



I like this place.

Okay. Have a good day at work.

You have a good audition...

and whatever else it is you do today.

Fair trade coffee.

You heard of this, huh?
