Reasons to Be Pretty

In this edgy, contemporary comedy, Greg makes the mistake of calling a female coworker “hot”, while describing his girlfriend as “regular”.  This overheard comparison throws his life into turmoil. Relationships at home and at work crumble, and four friends are forced to question their self-worth, amid deceit, insecurity and betrayal.
