Hysterical slice of life
8 January 2000 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

The story of 4 absolute "down-in-the-dirt" losers trying to land babes on a saturday night. The stories of the total geek and the wannabe playboy are the best. With the story of the cheating garage owner coming in third. The fourth story of the junkie movie star is a bit too serious and sweet at times to fit in with the rest of the film's laid back comedic and somewhat surreal mood but it's not too jarring with the rest of the film. The actor playing all four roles is Micheal Cote and I honestly think he should get the Peter Seller's award for multiple characters. He's great to watch. You really can't tell it's the same guy in all the roles. Highly recommended for those lonely Saturday nights when you'd rather be going out but would rather not go through what these guys went through.
