There's no sign of the writerly derring-do that is really essential to daisy-chain storytelling.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 11, 2001
Hit-and-mostly-miss retro comedy.
February 14, 2001
A light comedy, pure and simple (and hardly unfamiliar), but its makers sustain its energy through the unraveling of an intricate plot and bring to it a certain edge through a witty, sharp sense of observation.

This movie isn't merely disrespectful; it's contemptuous.

A frequently hilarious, exuberant ensemble comedy!
January 1, 2000
Director Risa Bramon Garcia and writer Shana Larsen obviously know their history and geography, and they've nailed the feel of the early '80s in the East Village.
January 1, 2000
Nothing much happens, and that's the point, but all this wheel spinning could have used more grease.
January 1, 2000
A tepid affair, distinguished by bland character development, uninspired and insipid dialogue, and a nonexistent plot.

January 1, 2000
It feels more like a high-level acting workshop than a narrative film.
January 1, 2000
You should be able to quash this one with no cravings to ever pick it up again.
January 1, 2000
Everybody vamps and preens as if it were amateur night in SoHo, and a few of the performers, such as Kate Hudson, appear ill-used.
January 1, 2000
A movie at odds with itself.
January 1, 2000
A twentysomething comedy with a brain-dead script, unflattering lighting and 16 performers in search of a scriptwriter.
January 1, 2000
A succession of pointed little moments, nicely written by Shana Larsen and acted with comic assurance and sensitivity.

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

January 1, 2000
Though it has its moments, 200 Cigarettes fails to make an impression because it doesn't have anything new to say about men, women or even Gloria Vanderbilt jeans.
January 1, 2000
Incredibly boring, poorly written, half-conceived, self-serving film.
