Here is the “For a Good Time, Call…” synopsis:

Love and friendship are on the line in “For a Good Time, Call…,” which is directed by Jamie Travis from an original screenplay by Katie Anne Naylon and Lauren Miller. The contemporary comedy world premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. There, it lifted audiences to their feet. Lauren Miller stars in the movie opposite Ari Graynor (“The Sitter,” “Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist”).

Two young women come up short on the funds needed to live in New York City. Lauren Powell (played by Lauren Miller) – a reserved overachiever – is suddenly on her own after boyfriend Charlie (James Wolk) abruptly breaks up with her. Katie Steele (Ari Graynor) – an irrepressible free spirit – is about to forfeit a dream residence unless she finds an apartment mate.

Their mutual best friend, Jesse (Justin Long), has the bright idea that they room together even though he knows they are polar opposites who haven’t spoken since they met in college and then fell out within minutes. When Lauren and Katie meet up anew at Jesse’s behest, they’re still an at-odds couple.

But without options, Lauren reluctantly moves in. With nothing in common, she and Katie barely speak until Lauren discovers that Katie is working as a phone-sex operator. This is, Lauren reasons, a good business opportunity. Together, they will buy a landline and start up their own answering service.
