Central to every tale of true love is a soul mate -- a person who, above all others -- understands you and fulfills you on every level. But what if we don't have a single soul mate, and are instead like giant jigsaw puzzles seeking multiple pieces to complete our picture? That's the idea behind romantic comedy Soul Mates, a series of nine vignettes exploring the many faces of a soul mate. With each new scene, you'll meet another pair of loved ones, and discover the ways in which they shape each other's lives. Learn More

Infinitesimal Kushner: Important philosophical, social, moral, political questions trivialized to obscenity. Pun intended.
Director's choice incomprehensible to me.
Houk was pretty good though, trying to get 3D out of his cartoonish characters
