Nothing really happens here outside of the sense of impending doom befalling the main characters. Thanks to Gleeson's classic 'honest man' performance, it's enough to keep me interested, but not much beyond that.
There is something purely "fun" about this movie. Maybe it's just that The Rock and SWC are a dream team on screen, or maybe it's that Peter Berg finally gives us a buddy comedy that manages to have brains in addition to its carefree sense of humor.
Linklater's debut film is stocked with incredible fascinating characters, and largely whimsical conversation. It's the type of movie that will and can only speak for those individuals who never felt truly 'at home'.
