Snooze City; Population: You
21 February 2004 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Oh man, I was hoping this John Stockwell/Janeane Garafolo movie would've been good. Cheap, but good. But it wasn't. Not at all.

What we have here is far too simple a story line dragged out for an hour and a half. Five friends are in a bar in Vegas. Then one gets in fight with another and he winds up shooting him. Then, they stuff the body in the trunk and spend the rest of the movie in a panic trying to figure out what to do while at the same time rehashing each person's version of the events. So three quarters of the movie is just repeating this scene and a bar and the fight in the alley.

The characters are all pretty annoying. There's apathetic Greg (or Grant?--it seems that this name changes throughout the movie). And the very annoying character, Martin, who in my book, should've been the one to be killed. The looney, Anne. And the victim, pretty boy Johnny.

But what does it all mean, Basil? The only intense part happens at the very end when all the characters start getting really nervous about what they're going to do. But by the time the friend confesses as to why he shot the other friend, it hardly adds to any suspense or brilliant ending.
