Seeing a film like this helps you to realize that actors are empty vessels waiting to be filled with characters and dialogue.

A tepid affair, distinguished by bland character development, uninspired and insipid dialogue, and a nonexistent plot.

The cast (playing uber-NYCers) are uniformly grating and obnoxious -- and Courtney Love as ringleader makes it even worse.

It did capture the East Village feel of the Reagan 1980s.

A twentysomething comedy with a brain-dead script, unflattering lighting and 16 performers in search of a scriptwriter.

It feels more like a high-level acting workshop than a narrative film.

Incredibly boring, poorly written, half-conceived, self-serving film.

Screen It!
January 1, 2000
The film's plot is too scattered and unwieldy, contains a few too many characters, and doesn't offer the snappy, intelligent dialogue found in other similarly set films.

A toss-up between wonderful moments and weak moments. This is one of the brightest vignettes of the film, thanks fully to Plimpton's stand-out, high-energy, hilarious performance.

Sound like Robert Altman directing a Cameron Crowe-rejected screenplay while on speed? Yes, and it seems that way when on the screen.

A threadbare ensemble comedy, struggling to be an 80s nostalgia film, and failing.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

First-time writer Shana Larsen makes the mistake of creating a couple of dozen characters and not giving any of them any depth.
