A couple of standout performances -- notably Robert Downey, Jr. and James Spader -- and a killer soundtrack can't quite elevate a somewhat superficial adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' story of drugged-out LA rich kids.

Ed Lachman's cinematography is letter perfect as always in its handling of light and color (assisted here by Barbara Ling's flashy production design), but it's a pity to see it wasted on such claptrap.
Perhaps this wasn't the best subject matter for British director Marek Kanievska (Another Country) to make his American debut. The feel for this distinctly Southern California story escapes him.
'80s drama about teen addiction has swearing, sex.
Loosely based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, Less Than Zero refuses to take the risks necessary to capture the keen social observation of the book.
The only saving grace of this exercise in futility is the suitably louche performance by Spader as drug-dealer Rip.
Jami Gertz was, is, and ever shall be one of the most egregious actresses in the history of film.
a bit of a mess
The anti-teen film that really kicks ass
Meant to be a statement against the amoral lifestyle of super-rich youth, it misses the mark by a mile.
Has style to spare, but none of the novel's shock value
Bret Easton Ellis's novel is fairly faithfully into a portrait of strung out teenage yuppies in LA during the late 80s.
A startling tale of alienation and self-destruction. Put Downey on the map, at least for a while.
At first the unlikable characters keep us from relating to the story but Kanievska manages the feat of making them all sympathetic later, in a devastating portrayal of drug addiction with a great soundtrack and two terrific performances by Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader.
This movie helped de-glamorize the life I felt I was missing out on. The sad story of friends as life moves on. Great soundtrack! The movie is not near as powerful as the book, but just because the story mixes in my head made the movie better. The glam life of my generation!! lol
A beautifully gritty young adult drama about life after high school. The cast is awesome, and so is the story. I love this movie.
robert downey jr is great and james spader is suitably slimy but they are surrounded by a picture that is utter junk
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
