Maybe it’s a little more complicated than that
“The Ultimate Milkshake” is a comedy about the little things that define our lives: birth, death, friends, love, sex, dreams, and finding a really good dessert. John and Anna have been friends since college and as they hit their thirties, they are also hit with a dose of reality. The impending birth of John’s niece and the sudden death of Anna’s aunt force the two to take stock in their lives. When the John and Anna realize that all their friends have married off and left them to each other, they wonder if Anna’s late aunt wasn’t right: John’s a boy and he’s a friend, shouldn’t that make him Anna’s boyfriend? But since neither of them have had successful relationships in the past, maybe what they need is right in front of them. Or maybe they’ll blow the whole thing when their friendship is tested with the hassles of flight delays, waiting rooms, La Maze, lumps, lesbians, public bathrooms, public displays of affection, boxers, panties, the alphabet, Darth Vader and Julia Roberts. Written by Dylan White, “The Ultimate Milkshake” has been described as “touching, poignant and really, really funny.” It’s a friendship that’s not for the lactose intolerant.
