Spurred by Blake’s extensive gambling, Miranda and the couple’s assistant convince their pal, Bobby, to strip. The fateful action is the catalyst for an explosive trial in which Adam Wilde (played by Lili Taylor) faces charges for hiring a private investigator to track down Blake’s former lover, Kelly Alexander (Angela Griffin). On top of that, Blake is soon implicated in four sexual harassment suits, forcing Miranda and Adam to take sides in a battle they thought they had left behind.
From the moment Brad Carnahan’s coming-of-age novel became a film adaptation, fans and critics alike eagerly awaited the depiction of the couple’s “anything but normal” love life.
