What it lacks as a cutting character drama, it makes up for in easily quaffable lifestyle porn, though it's up for debate whether one of those things is equal to the other.

It's not the most creative of plots, but it captures a generation and the down-on-your-luck-in-so-many-ways motif effectively: it's like comfort food, with more heart than Liman usually provides.

Four guys hang out, kid one another, get into scuffles and flash their gonadal searchlight for available women. Yikes, haven't there been enough variations on the multiple-buddy movie? Actually, no.

Director-cinematographer Doug Liman gets points for breathing a bit of life into an already tired indie sub genre.

A winningly confident snapshot of the nightlives of a bunch of young showbiz wannabes in a very upto-the-minute Hollywood.

The arc is nothing new, but the writing and pacing make it fresh and energetic, at least enough for it to have became a cult classic.

Liman and Favreau concoct a consciously derivative world for these guys, and though it's appropriate to the movie, I got tired of it after a while.

Directed in flair by Doug Liman, with winning performances from Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn, this comedy is the most successful since Diner of what could be described as a cycle of "walking and talking" and "hanging out" pictures.

Ninety minutes spent learning how not to pick up girls. This is what the movies were made for, isn't it?

This exercise in indie hipster cool is 'money'--and that's no joke, baby.

Mr. Favreau wrote this screenplay with his real friends in mind. And the cast's camaraderie is appealingly clear.

Rarely has the American male been portrayed more accurately... or with funnier results.

Christopher Null

One of those very rare movies where you really come out a changed, happier person -- at least for awhile. Hey, maybe I'm money, and I don't even know it!
| Original Score: 4.5/5
