In a not-so-distant dystopian future, the government has for some reason made marriage mandatory for everyone over 30. Those who haven't tied the knot by then are enrolled in an eHarmony-like matchmaking service and given up to five dates to find a spouse or face execution. Ricky W. Glore's comedy seems to be an attempt at satirizing the social expectations pressing down on single people, but in this unfocused staging, the premise is half-baked and sloppily realized. The best performances—Sean Price's as an acerbic bartender and Julia Chereson's as a string of bad dates—are peripheral to the main plot, which involves a pair of bland rom-com cliches and their inevitable happy ending. —Zac Thompson
