On a dark and stormy night when Pete was supposed to bring a friend for one of those dinners, he instead comes home with Zachary Cody, who rescued a stranded Pete whose car broke down. They invite Zach to stay for dinner instead of Pete's missing friend. They soon find out that Zach is among other things a racist neo-Nazi, which brings up a potentially dangerous situation for Jewish Marc and black Luke. After some physical altercations and verbal threats, Marc ends up stabbing Zach dead out of what he considers self-defense.

No license or permit is required to own or transport a shotgun in Iowa. However, it is illegal to transport one without it being locked in a case or disassembled. See more »

A comical introspection.
27 September 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If you can't laugh at yourself then you're destined for an unhappy existence. As a generation-Xer in the 90's this film showed me a comical snap-shot of myself. How many of us would love to emulate what this group did?

I don't normally appreciate black comedies but this one gave me plenty of chuckles. The film touches on some delicate issues without delving too far beneath the surfaces. If you're looking for enlightenment you won't find it here. If you're looking for entertainment involving subject matter many of us are concerned about, this is well worth viewing.
