Because the speechifying lacks the cutting comic edge that distinguishes good satire, Floundering too often blubbers when it should be viciously funny.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Floundering has floundered so thoroughly by the time of this catharsis that it, like everything else in the film, falls flat.

Yet another quirky independent comedy about a disenfranchised white male urban slacker, Floundering is distinguished mainly by its left-leaning politics and numerous cameos by boho thespians and alternative rockers.

One of those "chatty slacker" flicks that actually delivers some interesting characters and worthwhile conversations.

This first feature by independent producer Peter McCarthy is fairly lightweight, but the cast and low-rent production credits have a certain charm.

While the disjointed tale of contemporary alienation doesn't always connect the dots, it has a raw energy and sense of fun that's infectious.

It's an engaging, occasionally hilarious story that occasionally seems as though someone had finally gotten hold of all that twentysomething malaise without intent to exploit.

The movie gets a lot of mileage out of a seemingly simple concept.

For those who enjoy their comedy with an edge and don't mind the occasional preaching, there's a real winner to be found in Floundering.
