My Spree, the movie adaptation of the book written by Jason Fried (published as A Few Good Men) is a romantic drama about love and life in New York City. Director Noah Baumbach was inspired to make the movie after living for several years in the city and being unable to find a girlfriend. "After a while," says Baumbach, "you can't just be a guy looking for a girlfriend."
In New York, all kinds of people seem to live for love. From the famous people in town, to the rich and famous, to all the people on the streets, everyone seems to be chasing after love. This can lead to some serious problems, like drunkenness and prostitution. The main character, Tom Spilner, who works as a waiter at a trendy restaurant, has his own special brand of trouble, because he is too busy chasing his own kind of love: the women of New York.
One day, Tom meets a beautiful woman named Beth who works as a secretary for a company owned by her boss's father, and she has been married twice, once to an executive from the company. Her marriage was not a happy one. After Beth gave birth to a boy, Tom felt guilty because it was obvious that his daughter would never marry another man again. Tom decided that he would have to learn to accept his situation or move to a different state where there are more opportunities for him to meet women. This is where "A Few Good Men" begins.
Tom soon learns that he has a daughter, Audrey, who is now the CEO of an advertising company. But what happens when she discovers the truth about her father's company? When Tom meets his dream girl, Ellen (Mia Wasikowska), who lives on the Upper West Side, everything begins to fall into place.

The two men fall in love with each other, but only one of them knows about Jill's secret.

But the two men don't share the happy ending. and after a long drawn-out battle, Jill falls for the wrong man. In the movie, Jill ends up getting shot in the stomach, and Tom dies.
