Storyline

Mike, Danny, and Rick are grown men who share a house in Chicago. They take on a fourth house mate, John, who is Mike's estranged first cousin. John's welcome to the house is crowned by his introduction to a game of perpetual pranks called "Watch it!" When not playing pranks on each other, the three men spend their time womanizing, avoiding commitment, treating women badly, and talking about women in the coarsest terms. John, somewhat of a drifter with a fear of commitment, is nonetheless a man apart from this trio of feckless cowards. He takes a shine to Anne, recently jilted by his cousin Mike. Meanwhile, Rick is doing his best to ruin a promising relationship with the fetching and sincere Ellen. How Annie, Ellen, Rick, Mike, and John sort out (or fail to sort out) their social lives becomes the focus of the movie. Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

Quotes

Rick Miller: Ya know something, Big Time... you're letting this girl thing get way out of hand. I mean, not for nothing. But you, my friend, are the one who's sitting in the driver's seat.
John: I don't follow.
Rick Miller: Well, of course you don't, but that's why I'm here. Allow me, if you will, to familiarize you with the Rick Miller theory on women. Now, if you have to go to the bathroom, or anything, you should go now. Okay, look... the only woman a guy like you should have anything to do with is the one who has already ...

A Glimpse of Early Careers
19 August 2004 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

While bored, I dug up an old VHS copy of watch it that I haven't watched in close to ten years. While watching it, I began to notice the beginnings of some actors we see in all sorts of TV and movies. We see Cynthia Stevenson before she grew long hair and became the token actress to play mothers. It's odd to see her in this young age. We also see a nice glimpse of John C. Mcginley between Wall Street and Scrubs. He's a great actor, and we see more depth in him than in prior roles. In Wall Street, he was barely more than scenery. We also see Peter Gallagher before he got stuck in the scenery actor rut. A year later, we saw him for mere moments in Hudsucker Proxy. We see him everywhere, but despite his talent, we hardly see him in lead roles. I really enjoyed the film.
