The angst of middle age attacks an otherwise level-headed advertising executive in this routine drama from Jaime Camino. The unhappy ad man punches out a traffic cop in the middle of yet another exasperating gridlock and ends up on the wrong side of a set of bars to cool his ardor for awhile. After he gets out, he makes friends with a bank robber and brings him home, where long involved exchanges with his wife do nothing to help him make up his mind about his mid-life crisis. Meandering from pillar to post, both the ad exec and the script seem to have become lost at sea.
