Audience Reviews for Sink or Swim

Such a random unknown movie but I love it. There's a great cast and the situations they get themselves into over the course of one night are hilarious!

What was intended to be a witty satire, turns out to be rather flat and not particularly funny. However, there are some good scenes. The cast is good, although I find Illeana Douglas irritating. Lacks bite, the direction is sloppy.
