Storyline

Duncan, a philosophical nomad hitchhiking across America, grabs a ride to Ann Arbor, Michigan from Toad - a performance artist and purple leisure slacks enthusiast from the suburbs. Toad has recently left his home town to begin a new life in Ann Arbor where his co-dependent, folk-singing sister Jenny lives with her verbally abusive fiancé, a law student named Calvin. Jenny currently sees a suicidal therapist four times a week and armed with her acoustic guitar, drives away patrons from a local coffee house where she slings cappuccinos with her best friend Squeeze. Squeeze is a closet genius whose easy-going outlook and unconditional support keep her live-in boyfriend Hank from the brink. Hank is a painter who can't paint because he spends his time baking delicious pastries and practicing for the Oprah Winfrey Show. In Ann Arbor, the civilians listen to Julian, a sociopathic dee-jay whose frustration and lingering optimism goad him to find the truth by cutting through blind idealism, ...

Quotes

Duncan: I think it all started with the Declaration of Independence; the idea that we had the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That pursuit is what took America from the revolution to the computer age in 200 years. But the progress has come at a price. The obvious being the people that were exploited to make it possible; the not so obvious being us, the first group of people that were given no obvious frontiers to conquer. We hear stories about the good old days that ...

There were many gen-x comedies in the mid90s. Here's one!
1 October 1999 | by (Ann Arbor, MI) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the place it was probably most intended to be screened: the Michigan Theatre, a restored movie palace in Ann Arbor, the real Michigan town where the film is set. Ann Arbor is perhaps best known to the rest of the world as the home of Michigan Stadium and the Wolverines, a popular football team that -- many people don't know this -- is also accredited to teach college-level courses!

This movie does a fine job of quickly sketching life in Ann Arbor, an artistic, laid-back community occasionally referred to as "San Francisco of the Midwest." The scenes of the folksinger's residency in the local coffeehouse were right on for the time -- sadly, most local coffeehouses no longer support live music, and those that do have started charging cover, more-or-less becoming alcohol-free clubs.

I know this probably makes me sound a little sad, but I would love to find this film on video and reminisce on the times we were living in when it first came out -- finishing high school, discovering espresso, figuring out what we were "good at," giggling at how incredibly, extremely deep Duncan was.
