Great movie
18 May 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I got this movie because i really liked Gale Hansen in Dead Poets Society. The guy is brilliant! Don't listen to other people when they say this is boring - it really isn't. Its funny, full of one-liners and well acted (at least by Gale!).

Its a touching story in places, very 80s/90s cusp and tells the story of four male friends who are branching out into their lives with different ideas on what life will/wont hold for them. Two of them are successful, one is trying to be (if he ever finishes his novel) and the fourth is a rich kid/dead beat with a gambling problem. We watch the four living through their problems and successes with women, work and life. The only thing keeping them all together is their friendship.

Its also a fun film in places too (especially the baseball game part - Gale you are so funny...you have me in stitches!.

Personally i was sad to see it end - i could have quite easily sat through another two hours of Sully's 'shenanigans' :OD

Enjoy!
