In this study of Generation X manners, Lelaina, the valedictorian of her college class, camcords her friends in a mock documentary of posteducation life. Troy is her best friend, a perpetually unemployed musical slacker. Vickie is a manager at the Gap who worries about the results of an AIDS test, while Sammy has problems grappling with his sexuality. When Lelaina meets Michael, an earnest video executive who takes her homemade video to his MTV-like station, she must decide what she values--the materialism of yuppie Michael or the philosophical musings of Troy.

A comedy about love in the '90s.
Did You Know?
The scene in which Michael and Lelaina discuss the Big Gulp on the back of Michael's car was originally supposed to have the song "Beth" by 'KISS' playing. Ben Stiller
couldn't secure the rights to the song so they opted for "Baby I Love Your Way" by Peter Frampton
instead. Peter Frampton was an upstairs neighbor of Ben Stiller during filming of the movie. See more
The camera angle changes in the final camcorder shot of Lelaina saying "...and you wondered why we never got involved." See more
I have something to tell you, I am... a homo... homosexual.
