Movie Info

A comedy set in New York's East Village on New Year's Eve 1981, "200 Cigarettes" follows various young couples and friends whose lives will intersect at a party that night in a downtown loft. Anyone who has been on the town the last night of the year knows the familiar feelings: sentimental recollections, uncertainty about the future and fear that time is running out are mingled with the excitement of a cold winter night and the anticipation of a new love when the clock strikes 12. In "200 Cigarettes," the evening's magic pushes each character to share a secret or create a pact, rush toward calamity or run from danger, break up or hook up. But by evening's end, the characters will have one thing in common: all will be revealed in the clear light of the morning after.

Audience Reviews for 200 Cigarettes

    From MTV Films comes the throwback comedy 200 Cigarettes. The film follows several characters on New Year's Eve 1981 as they work their way to a party in the East Village of New York City. Featuring Paul Rudd, Christina Ricci, Courtney Love, Ben Affleck, Dave Chappelle, Kate Hudson, and Jay Mohr, the cast is quite impressive. However, the performances vary, as do the character stories; with a couple of them being rather tedious and boring. Yet, there's some interesting social commentary on relationships and the struggles that young people face. Additionally, the film makes good use of the '80s aesthetic in both the costuming and the soundtrack. Partying like it's 1981, 200 Cigarettes delivers some fun times but has trouble joggling all of its characters and storylines.

    A stupid and misguided comedy that has many funny moments but whose characters are empty and only follow the needs of a lame script - which also has no organic reason to be set in 1981 other than to be packed with 200 songs from back then.

    I had always thought this one would have turned out bad, but in the end, " 200 Cigarettes" along with a great cast to really deliver a good story with some great characters. Defently the pefect rental movie thats worth the rental price, but not quite worth the theater price. If you a fan of Paul Rudd, Casey Affleck, Ben Affleck, Dave Chappelle, and Christina Ricci, then you should defently give this one a look. Fun movie with real situations.
