Larry on the other hand flirts with every young woman, minimum of 20 years younger, who comes through to the restaurant. Larry has been married several times and never realized his dream of becoming an oceanographer like Jacques Cousteau. He owns a classic “White Corvette,” a symbol of masculinity and his identity, hence the title of the film. He worships his vehicle.
When a stunning “woman of certain” age comes for dinner they’re both thrown for a loop and stumble over her to offer her special service. Surprise! ALEXANDRA is a restaurant blogger/critic. A few days after her visit a review of her dining experience appears in the paper under the byline of ALEX. She decimates the restaurant with harsh, over- the –top- criticism of the food and of the owners.
Larry and Jack are outraged and want an apology and retraction. They go the paper and come up empty handed. They stumble over themselves, but Jack is smitten. He’s enamored of the woman who tore is beloved restaurant apart.
Because of the bad review business begins to decline rapidly. Jack and Alexandra become romantically involved, much to Larry’s consternation. “She drove a stake through your heart,” Larry says.
Larry becomes involved with drop dead gorgeous Megan, an artist with a very large dog. Megan although barely thirty is wise and sees through Larry and knows who he really is. She genuinely likes him.
Jack and Larry are eventually confronted with the fact the restaurant is going south and the doors will close. This happens while Jack becomes deeply, madly in love Alexandra -- the woman who has destroyed them.
Jack decides to create a new restaurant reborn with Italian cuisine with Alexandra who shares his heritage. There is no room for Larry in the new equation.
Larry does some soul searching. After a crisis of identity, he drowns his car in the river and thus his old self. Larry decides to go back to school and realize his dream of becoming an oceanographer following the rescue of a baby whale that earns him the respect he’s never had.
