Weird prom-night movie
19 March 1999 | by (Bloomington, IN, USA) – See all my reviews

I think the best reason to see this flick is to see Keanu Reeves in his earliest, and perhaps quirkiest role. Reeves plays a young loser who wakes up in an alley on prom night with no memory, no car, and no date. The rest of the film is a meandering series of misadventures involving pimps, dealers and car thieves.

Put your brain on hold while watching this one.
