In this contemporary New York comedy starring Anna Thomson and Louise Lasser , the romantic twists and turns of the patrons of a Manhattan coffee shop are strung together into a funny yet intimate and warmhearted tale. On her 35th birthday, Bella, an over-worked waitress, is set-up on a date with Bruno, an irresponsible cab driver and father of two. As Bella and Bruno begin their courtship, one of her regular customers Paul -a long-time widow- responds to an ad and meets Emily . After a few promising dates, Paul questions whether he still has the passion to make a new relationship work. As Paul comes to terms with this reluctance to be with Emily, Bella finds herself at a similar place with Bruno. Guardedly, the two couples continue amidst the swirling issues of love, sex, age and commitment. Soon however, a random encounter changes Bella's life in a way she could never have imagined. Both warm and tender as well as witty and sexy, Fast Food Fast Women is a refreshingly enjoyable ride through the irreverent lives of people looking for love.
