In the back of your mind, you’ll probably feel like For a Good Time, Call … is 15 years too late. Lauren and Katie (Lauren Miller and Ari Graynor) live in New York, which can be a soul-crushing experience if you’re young and broke. So they decide to make money by launching a phone-sex line. While some of those interludes are funny (and all are necessarily raunchy), who in the hell calls phone-sex lines anymore? Isn’t that why Al Gore invented the Internet? There’s a reason for the plot, though: This is more or less the life story of Miller and her co-writer, Katie Anne Naylon, when they were starving college students. Outdated plot notwithstanding, Miller and Graynor play off each other exceptionally well, and that’s just barely enough: Most of the rest of the film is just OK.
