wholly depressing
26 December 2003 | by (Greensboro, N.C.) – See all my reviews

A movie like Club Life leaves little to be desired. With a story of a small town boy coming to a big city to find work and only finding trouble, it's hard to stay cheerful. The depressing manner of death of new friends, drug addiction of your high school sweetheart, and bad jobs make this story's end morose and sad. After watching this, there is not much to be proud of in life. On the positive side, the movie provides an excellent depiction of how to snort cocaine, beat up people, and how to get beat up yourself by those who are stronger than you. The movie's moral: don't go to Hollywood. My moral: don't watch these kinds of movies.
