A party becomes a metaphor for the wasted lives of a handful of young hipsters in this edgy independent drama. Syd (Chris Evans) awakes from the latest in a long series of drug- and booze-fueled benders when he receiving a phone call from a friend informing him that London (Jessica Biel), who recently broke up with Syd, will be moving away from New York for California with her new boyfriend in a few days, and that a going-away party is being thrown for her that evening. Syd hasn't been invited

It's not so interesting to watch people on cocaine babble back and forth at each other.
'You are so annoying!' our hero screams in the heroine's face, halfway through London. 'You are 10 times more annoying than me!' our heroine quickly answers. They're both right.
The title refers to the name of one of a grouping of some of the most numbingly self-absorbed and obnoxious characters ever assembled in a single film.
Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy spends hours in a bathroom snorting a mother lode of cocaine while annoying everyone within earshot with his tales of woe. Sounds like a great idea for a movie. Let's do it!
...ultimately comes off as a well-intentioned failure that admittedly might hold some appeal for fans of the various actors...
...if you don't mind watching people who are better looking than you coking up for 90 minutes...
London is a very simple character piece that is not for every taste. I recommend the film, but I fully expect some that see it based on my recommendation will curse my name come the end credits.
While it shouldn't work, it does.
Grating and wildly unpleasant from beginning to end, London is perhaps one of the least entertaining films that I can recall seeing.
London's pretensions far outstrip its dorm-level contemplation of life's big issues.
I've seen more ferocious, and entertaining, spectacles at Raffi concerts.
The only thing more tedious than stoned people philosophizing about the existence of God is boys who can't bring themselves to say 'I love you.'
[The] script is so free of genuine insight into his beautiful but childish characters that it's hard to work up any sympathy for their shallow, juvenile problems.
Let's hope this movie hasn't come out too early in the year to be remembered for a well-deserved Razzie.
