Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up… comfortably. Jacob has never had to worry about money; his father’s inheritance has provided him with a nice lifestyle.

Living… in a luxurious bachelor pad in Los Angeles. He spends a lot of money on expensive clothes and furniture, all to seduce women.

Visiting… the bar down the road from his house, where he likes to pick up women. Jacob enjoys bringing home a different girl every night and finds women incredibly easy to understand and seduce. As he explains: “The war between the sexes is over. We won the second women started doing pole dancing for exercise.”

Interests… the art of seduction. Jacob doesn’t have very many friends until he meets Cal, a lonely, newly divorced man who frequents the same bar. Jacob wants to teach Cal how to attract and bed women. He tells Cal, “I’m going to help you rediscover your manhood. Do you have any idea where you could have lost it?”

Relationship Status… single, though Jacob longs for something more from life. His numerous conquests don’t seem to give him any real satisfaction, until he meets the vivacious Hannah, who initially rejects his advances.

Challenge… learning how to love. Jacob says that he’s “wildly unhappy” and is learning quickly that spending money and treating women like objects won’t give his life meaning.

Personality… suave, charming and sophisticated. Jacob’s flashy persona and quick-wit are what make him popular with women. It will take a special woman to get him to open up and show his sensitive side, though.
